[Skiboot] [PATCH v1 0/5] New HBRT interfaces

What we decided to do with the HBRT interface was to change the name to
'mfg_htmgt_pass_thru' to indicate that this interface is meant only for 
manufacturing interfaces and gives no warranty of backwards or forwards
compatible behavior.

Would it be reasonable to make the extra option "--mfg" which enables
special test and manufacturing-only interfaces?  I believe the proposed
'run_command' would also fit this.

My preference would be that this option is given on invocation of the
command requiring the extra option, not on invocation of opal-prd.  My
understanding is that opal-prd will typically be launched from a system
service.  It would be cumbersome to make manufacturing restart the
service in a special mode in order to utilize these commands.
