Bug Description

This proposes high availability/reliability feature to support Bare
Metal Node N+1 Redundancy based on the blueprints
volume-connection-information [1] and enhance-power-interface-for-soft-reboot-and-nmi [2].

When a bare metal node is failed due to hardware problem or is likely to be failed due to a sign of hardware failure, this function allows to switch over the node safely to another bare metal node in
short time if the failed node is booted from a share file system such as
FC, FCoE, iSCSI, NFS and etc.

This function exposes an API for switching over and would have an
Ironic CLI such as "ironic host-evacuate-cold" which was borrowed from
"nova host-evacuate-live".
