Ugh, Looking closer, we still end up deploying when the smoke tests run. It
feels like the only real difference between what is being exercised is that
one our explicit test scenario of putting two instances on two separate
networks and validating connectivity is not present between the two. I
guess I'm failing to see why we need all of the setup and infrastructure
when we're just testing pluggable network bits and settings their upon.
Maybe it is a good cantidate for looking at evolving how we handle scenario
testing so we reduce our gate load and resulting wait for test results.

We run the basic baremetal ops test, which tests deploy. If we're already
covering the same code paths in other tests (which I feel we are), then the
test feels redundant to me. I'm not worried about the effort to change the
job in other gates. We really need to pull agent_ipmitool out of the name
if we keep it anyway... which still means going through zuul configs.
