Fix for issue #146.

Remove littlechef's credentials function, as fabric natively handles these functions with recent releases. Littlechef's attempts were conflicting with fabric's native functionality.

Tested with Fabric 1.4.2 (minimum version supported by littlechef) and 1.5.3 (most recent version).

Tested authentication scenarios include username, password and keypair provided in config.cfg, and Host, HostName, User, and IdentityFile provided in an ssh configuration specified by ssh-config.

Remove use of credentials(). Fabric handles all those tasks
itself, and modifications made by credentials function interacted
negatively with fabric's functionality.

Second commit should probably be a second pull request but not sure how to make that happen. Previously either a password or ssh config was required. However, a username and keypair should be sufficient (assuming user can sudo without a password).

This is actually awesome. There may be some regressions, but probably nothing that cannot be easily fixed.

In any case I can confirm that using user/password/ssh-config does work
