Currently, VyOS support ssh-dss, ssh-rsa, ecdsa-sha2-nistp256, ecdsa-sha2-nistp384, ecdsa-sha2-nistp521, ssh-ed25519 key types in configuration. But only ssh-dss and ssh-rsa allowed to be used in Cloud-init deployments. It is necessary to add there all missed types.

Handling of all supported by VyOS configuration SSH key types was added to the VyOS 1.3 by this commit https://github.com/vyos/vyos-cloud-init/commit/d4004ac6ea1c7c03a35d9410f7c70ab423c926bb

Since was many changes, now we need to test fresh builds to see how it will work in the wild.
