Has Ironic settled on a migration path/tool from nova-bm? If yes, then
we should remove nova-bm support and point people at the migration

If Ironic decided not to provide one, then we should just remove support
as well.

If Ironic just isn't done yet, then removing nova-bm in TripleO is
premature and we should wait for them to finish.
