Add support for NoCloud cloud-init datasource
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


ProxMox VE hypervisors feature cloud-init VM provisioning through an autogenerated config drive in NoCloud format. While Vyos provides a cloud-init package, it appears it won't configure the network interfaces on such a setup, which is a bit of an issue for machines supposed to act as routers :-)

On closer examination, the file seems to contain network setup code, but only for the OVF method. The attached patch adds support for the NoCloud method. Note that I'm definitely not a Python programmer, but I hope there aren't too many mistakes, as the corresponding code is quite simple. I've also confirmed it to work on my ISO builds, so there's at least that.

NoCloud (and actually any datasource which provide network-config) must be supported now in VyOS 1.3. Feel free to test it.
