pm_address is cruft on the old nova API, and was replaced with driver_info
in ironic.

Node driver_info is presumably also unique, but the format varies between
drivers; uniqueness is not enforced, nor is it searchable in the REST API.
In some cases, there are half a dozen data points contained in driver_info
(eg, for double bridged IPMI in the case of moonshot) which collectively
inform the driver how to connect to and manage that node.
