ruby: changes how Topologies are created

Instead of just passing a list of controllers to the makeTopology function
in src/mem/ruby/network/topologies/<Topo>.py we pass in a function pointer
which knows how to make the topology, possibly with some extra state set
in the configs/ruby/<protocol>.py file. Thus, we can move all of the files
from network/topologies to configs/topologies. A new class BaseTopology
is added which all topologies in configs/topologies must inheirit from and
follow its API.
