[pve-devel] [PATCH v5 0/3] RFC: cloud-init update

We just talked this over a bit again.

If we keep going with this approach we could actually remove the
cloudinit config parameter and, similar to what Alexandre did in the
first patches, have an `ideX: cloudinit,storage=STOREID` parameter
enable cloudinit (but have it fix in the config rather than added after
doing `cloudinit: 1`).
For the UI enabling and disabling cloudinit would then be
adding/removing a cloudinit device. It would then also not have to be
hardcoded to ide3 but be configurable to any block device like when
adding a hard disk.

We'd then still need a parameter for templates. (Either a new one like
`cloudinit-template: xyz` or if we plan on adding more cloud-init
parameters we could keep `cloudinit: variouts,comma=separated,args`.

Another TODO before I forget about it again: physical cdrom drives
probably don't need `media=cdrom` in the code. should check that.
