[ironic] FFE: Add idrac HW type Redfish virtual media boot interface (Ruby Loo)


I think the bottom line ends up being "are things ready" by the time
we need to cut the stable branch for the train cycle release product.

In this case, it was not ready with the required reviews. We should
not thus back-port it unless there is a seriously compelling case or
reason with substantial community support. We've had to backport major
patches at the last minute before, but that was _ONLY_ when CI was
completely broken and those patches were required to fix CI and have a
functional release.

In other words. I'm not going to force or approve it. In fact, at this
point, I think stable policy stands for the stable/* branches, and we
need to accept that it didn't manage to make it on the train when the
train had to be shipped. I only suggested that we even consider the
patch because I didn't see a 13.0.0 release patch already proposed
when I reviewed the email and reviewed the patch being proposed for
review.

We can opt out it, of course, but let us keep in mind the implications it has for consumers that expect stable branches to be, well, stable.

We have already been quite relaxed with a few patches that had been ready by the FF date (and got delayed partly because of the CI state).
