[openstack-dev] [Ironic] PXE driver deploy issues

I think your driver should implement a wrapper around both VendorPassthru
interfaces and call each appropriately, depending on the request. This
keeps each VendorPassthru driver separate, and encapsulates the logic about
when to call each of them in the driver layer.

As an aside, this is a code path (multiplexed VendorPassthru interfaces)
that we haven't exercised yet, but has come up in other discussions
recently too, so if you run into something else that looks awkward, please
jump into IRC and we'll help hash it out.
