Wake-On-Lan (WOL) power driver

Registered by Lucas Alvares Gomes on 2015-06-02

Wake-On-Lan is a standard that allows a computer to be powered on by a network message. This is widely spread and doesn't require any fancy hardware to work with. For users that want to try Ironic with real bare metal instead of Virtual Machines and only have some old PCs around.

It's important to note that Wake-On-Lan is only capable of powering **on** the machine. After the machine is unprovisioned, the machine needs to be manually powered off.

The proposed implementation consists of a driver implementation that will use the available MAC addresses registered in the node to create and send the magic packets for the Wake-On-Lan.
