I have tested with debian10.

I have done more tests, on my side, the first time I change instance-
id.( so changing ip address for example), it's correctly regenerated or
not the ssh keys.

But, if I change multiple time ip address to change instance-id, and
reuse same (change ip from 192.168.0.1 (generation cloudinit: sshgen
yes : ok) -> 192.168.0.2 (generation cloudinit - sshgen yes : ok) -> 
192.168.0.1 - (generation cloudinit: sshgen yes : not ok)


So, maybe it's related to local cache. I don't have problem with ip
config generation.

Maybe it's buggy, or not well tested . (anyway cloud-init is not really
done to be reused multiple time).
so I think it's better to not wasting time to workaround it.

Thanks for your time to review and test.




Personnaly, I'm currently working to improve opennebula one context 
(Thomas have merged my patch for opennebule config drive format this
month),  adding missing dhcp config support) and removing non-needed
dependencies.

It's really working better than cloudinit, online changes are working
out of the box, fs resize on disk resize is working too, simple bash
scripts,...
