Hi Zhongyue,

Yes, please target new drivers towards Ironic. That is, IMNSHO, where all
further development around Bare Metal provisioning should be going.

For context, both AMD and HP have already submitted hardware-specific
drivers to Ironic. We are in feature-freeze mode right now, so new feature
code (like a new driver) won't be merged until Juno development opens.
You're welcome to submit the code early and folks might review it anyway if
they have time.
