Bug description:

  Any instances launched with bridges or bonds in their network
  configuration will fail to bring up networking.

  [Test Case]
  # Juju bootstrap on maas of a machine sets up a network bridge that triggers 
a failure in cloud-init init stage.
  # This results in a maas machine deployment failure and the machine gets 


  # Alternate steps on a maas machine with a bridge already created
  A1. confirm a bridge interface is configured for the target machine on 
interface eno1, name it broam, attach it to a subnet and select auto-assign for 
  A2. click deploy -> bionic
  A3. Once manual deployment fails go to step  2 below

  # Alternative 2 juju bootstrap failure on maas
  B1: juju bootrap mymaas --no-gui
  B2: Once bootstrap fails go to step 2

  2. After deployment failure and machine is powered off click on the 
failed/released node in the MAAS UI
  3. Click Rescue Mode from the 'Take Action' drop down in the MAAS UI
  4. Grab the IP from the interfaces tab
  5. ssh ubuntu@<theRescueMachineIP> -- cloud-init status --long
  # Expect failure message
  6. Click Exit Rescue Mode on the node in MAAS UI.

  7. ssh to the maas server add the following lines to
  /etc/maas/preseeds/curtin_userdata to test official *-proposed

  system_upgrade: {enabled: True}
         source: deb $MIRROR $RELEASE-proposed main universe   # upstream 

  8. Repeat step 1 and expect bootstrap success
  # expect to see MAASDatasource from bootstrapped machine and no errors
  9. juju ssh 0 -- cloud-init status --long

  [Regression Potential]

  The change being SRU'd adds more conditions to an existing
  conditional.  There is potential to regress the cases that the
  existing conditional was introduced to cover, so we will be testing
  those specifically.  Other than that, there was some minor refactoring
  of the existing conditional statement (which did not change the logic
  it checks), which could cause issues for Oracle netfailover
  interfaces.  We will also specifically test on Oracle.

  [Original Report]


  After deployment of Ubuntu Bionic image on MAAS provider (deploying to
  a bare metal server) juju cannot access any deployed machine due to
  missing SSH keys and machines are stuck in pending state:

  $ juju ssh 0
  ERROR retrieving SSH host keys for "0": keys not found

  $ juju machines
  Machine  State    DNS            Inst id          Series  AZ   Message
  0        pending  block-3          bionic  AZ3  Deployed
  1        pending  block-2          bionic  AZ2  Deployed
  2        pending  block-1          bionic  AZ1  Deployed
  3        pending  object-2         bionic  AZ1  Deployed
  4        pending  object-1         bionic  AZ2  Deployed
  5        pending  object-3         bionic  AZ3  Deployed

  It worth mentioning that pods can be successfully deployed with MAAS,
  only bare metal deployment fails.

  We checked different bionic images: cloud-init 19.2.24 works, and
  cloud-init 19.2.36 doesn't.
