Ironic drivers to support local boot with partition images

Registered by Syed Ismail Faizan Barmawer on 2014-12-16

At present ironic drivers that deploy partition images require ironic conductor for subsequent reboots of the node. The subsequent reboot of the node will happen either through pxe or using virtual media. Also there is no way a nova user can specify the boot option, local/netboot for deploy using partition image.

This blueprint proposes to accept the boot option specified by nova flavor and make the subsequent reboot of the baremetal from local hard disk drive instead of pxe or vmedia, depending on the boot option selected by the user.
