Move boot to discover server
This change moves the boot-via-kexec functionality from the UIs to the discover server. On the UI side: rather than run kexec directly, we just send a message to the discover server. Because this is generic discover client functionality, we no longer need the boot callbacks in the twin- and ncurses-specific code. We also remove the kexec and URL-loading code from the UIs, and add it to the discover server code, in paths.c. We expose this to the server though a new function: load_path(void *, const char *, unsigned int *); On the server side, we simply move hook up the boot() function to use the load_file and kexec calls.
