Requesting FFE for firmware based iSCSI boot from volume support in iLO

# Pros
With the patches up for review[0] we have implemented firmware based iSCSI
boot from volume for iLO hardware.

This functionality will allow users to take advantage of iLO BMC based boot
from volume, as UEFI firmware 1.40 or higher in HPE Gen9 and Gen10 ProLiant
hardware supports booting from iSCSI volume.

The change adds the feature to the iLO drivers feature set and does not have
any impact on the existing functionalities of iLO driver.

# Cons

# Risks

# Reason of delay
This feature required new version of proliantutils (2.5.0), which got
last week

# Core reviewers
Julia Kreger, Shivanand Tendulker
