[Bug 1506521] Re: [Hyper-V] hv_set_ifconfig issues on Wily 15.10


The easiest fix for this is to switch back to the upstream bash script
for this functionality. Barring that, the script needs to be converted
for Python 3.

  [Hyper-V] hv_set_ifconfig issues on Wily 15.10

Bug description:
  It seems that during the Wily development, some changes have occurred that broke the hv_set_ifconfig  script.

  Please see the below details and update the script accordingly.
  From my understanding the changes in python versioning on 15.10 are causing this, and when running hv_set_ifconfig  with Python v3, it will give some code errors.

  This has been verified with the daily build from Oct 12, kernel
  4.2.0-16-generic and the matching linux-cloud-tools/common are

  # whereis hv_set_ifconfig
  hv_set_ifconfig: /usr/sbin/hv_set_ifconfig

  # /usr/sbin/hv_set_ifconfig
  /usr/bin/env: python: No such file or directory

  Indeed there is no python executable by default, only python3.

  Modifying the header for hv_set_ifconfig to use python3, returns the

  ~# /usr/sbin/hv_set_ifconfig
    File "/usr/sbin/hv_set_ifconfig", line 130
      print "==================================="
  SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'
