[devops] Create devops bare metal driver

Registered by Igor Shishkin on 2013-11-06

To test hardware installation automatically via jenkins or simply from nosetests we need hardware driver to devops library (https://github.com/Mirantis/devops).

It should be able at least to start/stop/reset node(via IPMI), mount iso image(via PXE for example).

In QA Retro this blueprint implements:
8. Update devops to support bare-metal node type

PS. Might be useful http://sourceforge.net/p/xcat/python-ipmi (working, but IPV6 hardcoded)
PPS.
Might be useful http://ipxe.org/howto/chainloading

Resume:
1. Through pxe cab be loaded ipxe
2. Through ipxe (sanboot or memdisk) iso/image can be loaded through http/tftp
3. memdisk/sanboot can't emulate cd/hdd
4. Fuel hardcoded to get kikstartscrips from cd/hdd

Proposal:
1. Boot centos iso through pxe with only RAM using
2. Execute kickstart scripts from http
4. Reboot in to the Fuel

QA 3.2 Retro
https://docs.google.com/a/mirantis.com/document/d/1mW09Apj6YrYt0HhwgsP3phMhzjqX_Fi5B8KK7qRsHlI/edit

mihgen - what's the status on this effort?
teran - https://github.com/Mirantis/devops/pull/24 -- the current code for this blueprint.

Was updated on previous week: rebased and fixed all inconsistent stuff. Currently required steps:
 * Create scheduler inside devops to operate multiple drivers(partialy done)
 * Adapt IPMI driver to current devops code
