Bug Description

For a driver to be in tree, you must:

1) Have functioning CI
2) Pass it regularly

The ipminative (pyghmi) driver does not have working CI, and cannot upstream as virtualbmc is built using pyghmi, making it unlikely to be a valid testing scenario.

Additionally, we've had many reports from Ironic users that they got unstable behavior when they tested the ipminative driver in their staging/production environments.

Unless we are able to get 3rd party CI for this driver, and resolve the stability issues, it should be removed from ironic per our driver policy.

    Remove deprecated, untested ipminative driver

    The ipminative driver was marked as unsupported on September 28, 2016,
    and an email was sent to the list on March 9th, 2017 asking for
    volunteers to run third-party CI to save the driver from deprecation.

    Additionally, many ironic contributors who also deploy ironic have
    reported instability while using this driver. For these reasons it's
    being removed from the main ironic tree. If there are any users still
    interested in this driver, they are invited to host it elsewhere.
