Description of Problem:
IPI failed during iPXE boot because IRONIC_KERNEL_PARAMS does not contain coreos_kernel_params in inspector.ipxe file.
To boot the coreos IPA, there are some coreos related kernel params need to be set, and they are passed to the bare metal servers through IRONIC_KERNEL_PARAMS.
During iPXE boot, IRONIC_KERNEL_PARAMS is set in inspector.ipxe file which is rendered by the runhttpd script and currently coreos_kernel_params are not contained.
This is because coreos_kernel_params will only be added into IRONIC_KERNEL_PARAMS if rootfs file exists, but the rootfs file is downloaded by the coreos-downloader which is currently started after the runhttpd script executed.
