discover: Make boot_priorities more flexible
Rather than rely on the ordering of the boot_priorities array to define which device types have a higher "default boot" priority, this change introduces a slightly more flexible way of priority lookups, by adding a separate priority field to struct boot_priority. This means we can have an unordered array, change priorities without re-writing the array, and implementing a disable mechanism. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Kerr <>
