VMware Provider: Allow enablement of Secure Boot

Hi folks.

There is some work ongoing regarding SecureBoot (e.g. Add SecureBoot support for arbitrary distributions).

Wouldn’t it be nice if the VMware compute resource/provider (fog-vsphere) would be able to allow a user to create VMs with enabled SecureBoot?

Changes in fog-vsphere seems to be feasible as proposed here already: VMware Provider: How to enable Secure Boot - #2 by larrythecow

Missing part is a option in the web UI and hammer CLI.

I could think of something like:

Open for discussions.

When working on Fixes #37009 - Implement EFI for libvirt by ekohl · Pull Request #9965 · theforeman/foreman · GitHub I looked at the VMware implementation and noticed it too. Mostly that the automatic option can’t derive EFI secureboot from the PXE loader, but once you have it automatic you also want to have it manual.

A PR would be very welcome.
