Add "system powerdiag" command to cobbler

1. Feature name
   cobbler: add an interface to send NMI to system

2. Description:
   Some systems have a management interface to send NMI to host,
   that is useful for triggering crash dump on stalled system.
   In the case of IPMI, ipmitool has 'power diag' option to send
   diagnostic NMI. (see ipmitool manpage)
   This request is to add an interface to cobbler to make use of this
   system management feature.

3. Additional information:
   This feature is necessary to solve Beaker feature request BZ#572834.
   (Also maybe useful to implement another feature BZ#572836)

Attached is a patch to allow 'send NMI' operation by
'cobbler system powerdiag' for power_ipmitool.template.
The word "powerdiag" comes from ipmitool and can be changed
if better word exists.

We are dropping cobbler from beaker.  This functionality will be supported under native provisioning.
