This is an attempt to cleanup current behaviour of cloudinit online changes.

Currently, we setup cloudinit options as pending, until we generate the config drive.

This is not 100% true, because some option like vm name, nic mac address can be changed,
without going to pending, so user can't known if it need to regenerated it.

Also, some can are very difficult to handle, if you hotplug a nic but it's failing,so pending,
then you defined an ipconfig, and then you revert hotplug.
or if you delete a nic, the ipconfig is no more displayed in the gui.

So, instead of setting cloudinit values in pending,
this patch serie copy the current cloudinit config in a new section [special:cloudinit],
when the config drive is generated.
This is only an hint, to allow to display diff between the generated cloudinit
drive, and the current vm config.

A new specific cloudinit config api is added too displaying the diff between current and generated config.

Reminder: This need pve-manager depency bump first to check the version for live migration.
pve-manager patches series is available here : https://lists.proxmox.com/pipermail/pve-devel/2021-June/048542.html
