  [Hyper-V] hv_set_ifconfig issues on Wily 15.10

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Trusty:
Status in linux source package in Wily:
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released

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'
