[tools]Add jenkins job to automatically trigger ipmi mainboard restart periodically.
From the virtualization practice using ipmi machine, I find that the ipmi machine's ipmi main board become unstable after using constantly for some time like two weeks or long. It made the test results unreliable. I had to restart ipmi manually and retrigger the job after I found it.
So maybe we can add a new jenkins job to do such a thing. To avoid the restart affecting running jobs, it is better to be done on two constraints, one is to meet the time period check( machine is used for over two weeks or so), second is before a new build trigger starts.
@oliver, do you agree with such a resolution? Can we write a jenkins job to do it?

- Category set to Infrastructure
a jenkins job might work to accomplish this as a workaround but this should rather be covered by standard monitoring solutions -> infrastructure issues that probably needs some discussions to other teams, e.g. SUSE-IT

Thanks very much to oliver and richard's help.
