[openstack-dev] [ironic] Removing agent vendor passthru and unsupported drivers

Hi Ironicers,

currently I'm busy with removing the lookup/heartbeats "as vendor passthru"
from Ironic which we slated for removal in Ocata, and have the following

Removing the old agent vendor passthru requires changes to some unsupported
drivers whose copies are already in ironic-staging-drivers. The drivers in
question are WoL, iBoot and especially AMT (which uses a custom
not-so-vendor passthru).

AFAIU according to our third-party drivers policy, those unsupported
drivers have to be removed from Ironic tree anyway (as there is no plan to
test them on third-party CI AFAIK) and this looks like a perfect time to do

So ideally I'd like to fix those in ironic-staging-drivers and then remove
them from Ironic tree via a depends-on patch.

What do you think on such plan?
