Title: #258: Break ipaplatform / ipalib import cycle of hell
The original code is broken by design IMO. The API object is used only to get
the configured service startup timeout and to guess our DS instance name. None
of this is platform specific, so I would prefer if we removed this from
`ipaplatform` altogether instead of "just" fixing the import issue.
Anyway, given that the current plan is to make `ipaclient` _not_ depend on
`ipaplatform`, is this change still necessary?
