Bug Description

This might be useful in a variety of scenarios, so it would be nice for maas to have a way to specify an alternate IP for the AMT power template.

[Test Case]
Without the Fix:
1. Install MAAS
2. Add a new node and set power management to AMT.
3. Configure MAC Address without knowing AMT machine IP.
4. It will fail to power manage.

With the Fix:
2. Configure IP address of AMT Machine (which is the same as the discovered in the commissioning environment)
3. MAAS will be able to power manage machines.

Yep, verified (by adding the optional power_address parameter on one of the nodes imported into the new version and noting that it does indeed override the default IP address maas has).
