[Merge] ~daniel-thewatkins/cloud-init/+git/cloud-init:networking into cloud-init:master


The proposal to merge ~daniel-thewatkins/cloud-init/+git/cloud-init:networking into cloud-init:master has been updated.

Commit message changed to:

net/cmdline: split interfaces_by_mac and init network config determination

Previously "cmdline" network configuration could be either
user-specified network-config=... configuration data, or
initramfs-provided configuration data.  Before data sources could modify
the order in which network config sources were considered, this
conflation didn't matter (and, indeed, in the default data source
configuration it will continue to not matter).

However, it _is_ desirable for a data source to be able to specify that
its network configuration should be preferred over the
initramfs-provided network configuration but still allow explicit
network-config=... configuration passed to the kernel cmdline to
continue to override both of those sources.

(This also modifies the Oracle data source to use read_initramfs_config
directly, which is effectively what it was using
read_kernel_cmdline_config for previously.)
