Submit board schematics to OpenBMC docs repo

Hi Andrew

There are a number of specifics on both the Linux kernel and in user space
code that are much easier to implement by having access to the board
schematics. Some examples:

   - What devices are connected to which I2C bus?
   - Which fan headers are connected to which PWM and TACH signals?
   - ...

By having the vendor publish this information, it can used by anyone to
create the necessary files and changes without having to deal with legal
implications of using unpublished information. Does that make sense?
