Allow users to set next bootdev from MAAS

Registered by Leandro Reox on 2017-10-23

- Use case:

We use IPMI a lot a on the DC since we have the BMC user and password previous to any of the things that we wan to do with MAAS, it will be great to have an option to set the next bootdev to PXE from the MAAS API/UI for a node or a group of nodes and maybe have the ability to reboot it after it if we want so the enrollment process can begin normally on MAAS. It will be more end-to-end to users, that maybe scripting this outside of the tool.

- How

Using ipmitools to set the next bootdev to pxe for the next boot only and reboot the node

- Issues

Can be limited to servers that supports IPMI, can be extended to other system that supports setting next bootdev
