Maintenance mode : Migration Evaluation upfront to detect failures and prevent canceling all migrations

We would like to see the whole maintenance mode (also known as "evacuate mode") , check first if there are errors in the precheck and validation steps, and then put them aside if they are failed, and run the migrations of the good ones .

At the same time, PowerVC would display a list of the failed precheck VMs, and offer us to fix the problem and retry those migration later, while processing the other ones.
