Bug Description

right now, seed_random is running in 'cloud_init_modules'.
The reason for that was to ensure that it ran before the ssh config module (which writes the ssh keys).

The problem is that cloud_init_modules is not guaranteed to have network access, and we're running 'pollinate -q', which depends on network.

the result is that if you seed an image (cloud-localds) or use config-drive, pollinate will/may run before network is available.
