Bug Description

In the BrcdFCSanLookupService, when initialize. The ssh client should be allowed to load customized host key file instead of only load from the OS host key file. Also for the host key missing policy, the code should also allow to be customized by parsing the kwargs instead of hard-code the "missing policy". The "MIssing Policy" will not stop the man in the middle attack if the known_hosts is not a match, it should allow customized policy being configured in different scenarios to fit the security need.

    BrcdFCSanLookupService should allow customize host key and policy

    In BrcdFCSanLookupService, the initialization should allow the
    customization of the known_hosts_file and missing_key_policy so that the
    hosts key and missing policy can be customized according to the
    different scenario and customer aspect. This will not change the default
    behavior when no argument is given, but more flexible to allow the
    caller to give more options according to different requirements.
