Default values don't need to be parameters, they're already stored in OVIRT_* variables.

hmm, we don't have this boot parameter yet, it should be added to the parsing case in ovirt-early.
But it could also be figured out automatically: for PXE boot we already have BOOTIF boot param.
Assumption is that automated installs are mostly going to be done using PXE boot.

this one is not a parameter in pxelinux or anaconda format and ifcfg scripts derives it using ipcalc command
