Bug Description

cloudinit.stages emits logs messages like the following when the cloudconfig module's distro attribute doesn't match the running disribution

When a*py module distros attribute doesn't match the discovered, cloudinit.stages emits a log message about skipping the module in the following form:

2017-09-07 06:03:25,838 -[INFO]: Skipping modules ['runcmd'] because they are not verified on distro 'ubuntu'. To run anyway, add them to 'unverified_modules' in config.

But, it doesn't actually skip running the module, we can see in the logging that follows:
Running module runcmd (<module 'cloudinit.config.cc_runcmd' from '/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/cloudinit/config/'>) with frequency once-per-instance.

cloudinit.stages should honor a skipped module and avoid running its handler.

Might also look into unverified_modules behavior, it looks like it is ineffective as well. Just a log message and no further change in behavior made by run_section.
