igb ufm support
It'd be nice to enable support for ufm information in igb and allowing us to read the igb eeprom. This change works with #12759 and makes igb the first consumer of the new interfaces. Being able to read the eeprom is also useful for figuring out if folks have hardware the support some of the weirder sensor interfaces as well as general introspection. This will add the ability to both report and read UFM images.

To test this, in addition to the testing that was a part of 12759, I dumped the eeprom from several different parts including:
- I350 (both on-board and discrete)
In addition to the
fwflash -l output, I went through the dumped eeprom retrieved via
fwflash -r and manually verified that different aspects of the flash image all lined up. This included that the mac addresses were there, the VPD section pointers, and more.
