Introduce inject NMI interface in nova ironic driver.

Registered by Tang Chen on 2015-09-30

For now, there is no way to inject NMI into an instance.

According to blueprint enhance-power-interface-for-soft-reboot-and-nmi,
(https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ironic/+spec/enhance-power-interface-for-soft-reboot-and-nmi)
ironic will soon support instance NMI injection. So we can improve nova
ironic driver to support this functionality.

                Enhance Power Interface for Soft Power Off and Inject NMI

Waiting for the Ironic blueprint to be approved before we approve this. Also, I'd expect to see integration testing in the Ironic CI job for this change given the dependencies and microversions involved with Ironic to make this work. -- mriedem 20160602

    Enhance Power Interface for Soft Power Off and Inject NMI

This is approved for Ocata as a specless feature parity blueprint but is blocked on the changes getting implemented on the Ironic side. -- mriedem 20161110

Just an update on status, looks like this is still got a long way to go on the Ironic side:

https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bug/1526226

So this is most likely not going to make feature freeze of January 26th for Nova in the Ocata release. -- mriedem 20161227

Nova code was already posted.
