Port ETCD and ETCDCTL to IBM i

Implement ETCD and ETCDCTL from

FYI ...

There is already an AIX implementation under AIX Toolbox and I list it here as two items because it is list in AIX Toolbox as separate items (although ETCDCTL is the control tool for ETCD).

GO is a prerequisite to ETCD and there is already an existing RFE #97588 for GO.
