Storage: Offer installation of NFS client support

System: Request FreeIPA SSL certificate for Cockpit’s web server
When enrolling into a FreeIPA domain, an SSL
certificate is requested from the IPA server and stored in
/etc/cockpit/ws-certs.d/10-ipa.cert. Cockpit’s web server will then use that
certificate instead of the default self-signed one. The IPA server’s
certificate authority is trusted by default and accepted by web browsers,
OpenSSL, curl, and other network clients.
Services: Show unit relationships

Provide motd help about how to access cockpit
Cockpit now provides an
motd message that explains how to enable

This requires PAM 1.3.1
and enabling the
session optional pam_motd.so
