EC2 Integration Tests


Hi cloud-init community,

I am happy to announce that the ec2 backend was merged [1] into
the integration framework last week. This extends the integration tests
to allow the usage of ec2 datasource via KVM in additional to the
already existing LXD and nocloud-kvm backends.

The ec2 backend utilizes the boto3 python library and expects an AWS
access key id, secret access key, and region to be configured [2].

Weekly jobs will run the ec2 tests against Ubuntu Xenial, Artful, and
Bionic. The ec2 tests were also added to the Ubuntu proposed testing.
