Bug Description

We do not yet have an openstackclient command that provide the same functionality as 'ironic driver-properties'.

recap: 'ironic driver-properties' returns a table with two columns, the names of properties and their descriptions. These properties are what needs to be populated in a node's driver_info.

Some possibilities:

openstack baremetal driver show --properties
   pro. properties are part of a driver, so it fits here
   con. the information returned is different that the info returned w/o --properties
   Trying to return the driver info AND the properties is ugly because the table would need to
   include both 'types' of information

openstack baremetal driver properties show
   pro. it is clear what it is?
   con. Not sure this conforms to openstackclient 'philosophy'. Is a 'driver properties'
        an object? All we do is display this information; it cannot be manipulated.

Actually, there are several solutions (see screenshots)

1. openstack baremetal driver show <driver> --properties
Show driver info with properties in a user-friendly table
But driver info is actually redundant information,
because name of the driver and its hosts you can see in

openstack baremetal driver list .

And typing show command you already know the name of the driver
Actually, I think that the show command without properties or other
additional properties does not show the useful info about driver that we don't know.
Thus, the command can be implemented just as

openstack baremetal driver show <driver>
and show driver properties by default

3. openstack baremetal driver show <driver> --properties
and show only the properties without driver info.
If driver info itself is extended I am not sure that
this solution will satisfy openstack conventions

IMHO, the best is the second one

The next screenshot for solutions 1 and 2

The command we decided upon is 'openstack baremetal driver property list <driver>'.

    Add OSC 'baremetal driver property list' command

    Extends OSC plugin with the new command:

    This returns a list of the names of a driver's properties
    along with their descriptions.
