Bug Description

cloud-init tip fails to render a netplan bridge configuration with a stp value.

% cat network_configs/bridge-simple.yaml
showtrace: true
    version: 1
        # Physical interfaces.
        - type: physical
          name: eth0
          mac_address: "52:54:00:12:34:00"
              - type: dhcp4
        - type: physical
          name: eth1
          mac_address: "52:54:00:12:34:02"
        # Bridge
        - type: bridge
          name: br0
            - eth1
              bridge_fd: 150
              bridge_stp: 'off'

Currently renders a netplan config of:

    version: 2
            dhcp4: true
                macaddress: '52:54:00:12:34:00'
            set-name: eth0
                macaddress: '52:54:00:12:34:02'
            set-name: eth1
            - eth1
                forward-delay: 150

netplan in artful with bridge stp support enables STP by default (unless disabled)
This prevents setting some values of forward-delay. In any case, we should translate
the bridge_stp value to the netplan boolean.

I filed this thinking systemd/networkd was broken, but learned a little more about ForwardDelay and STP, but turns out it was behaving correctly though it wasn't obvious. For reference (bug is invald)
