Bug Description

Ubuntu initrd is case sensitive, upper casing the mac address that is set on BOOTIF causes the initrd not to be able to find the network interface with that mac address.

======= SRU REQUEST =======
[Impact]

 Ubuntu initrd is case sensitive, upper casing the mac address that is set
 on BOOTIF causes the initrd not to be able to find the network interface
 with that mac address.

 We certify only on LTS releases, so this patch need to be backported from
 Maas/1.6 to Maas/1.5 to certify PowerNV on Trusty (14.04).

[Test Case]

 To produce this bug, PXE boot PowerNV and you should see a message saying
 "kexec load failed"

 Applied the patch to Maas/1.5 and tested on PowerNV, after the patch was
 applied, I was able to PXE boot a PowerNV system.

[Regression Potential]

 None
