PowerVC should be able to use redundant VIO mover service pairs doing LPM

Using actual POWER systems server and PowerVM software stack (HMC, VIO and system firmware) a Live Partition Mobility action can take advantage of redundant VIO server environment by using two mover service partition pairs for parallel data transmission to rise overall bandwidth and availability. Initiating a LPM action by HMC this parallel behavior can be configured by Enhaced GUI+.
Using PowerVC to initiate a LPM action this functionality is not used. Instead (as described by documentation) PowerVC is aware of multiple possible mover service partition pairs, but chooses randomly one pair for real data transmission within one LPM action.
