VIO CLI to display "storageLabel" for LUN

There needs to be a command that displays the "storageLabel" for LUNs from the VIO server CLI. The Storage Label is a variable being pulled from VIOS CM database using an API call (readVIOSInventory). The PCM log captured in the HMC's pedbg (FFDC.log) does show that one attribute read from VIOS CM PV map is storageLabel.

    Storage Label is available via the Rest API when you query for the VirtualIOServer object (https:///rest/api/uom/VirtualIOServer or https:///rest/api/uom/ManagedSystem//VirtualIOServer). If this does not address your requirement., please re-open with more details on the use case/requirement.
