Exoscale datasource overwrites *all* cloud_config_modules

Bug Description

While testing the Exoscale datasource for its inclusion in a SRU, it was discovered that a cloud_config_module didn't work.

Passing user data such as: https://gist.github.com/chrisglass/fb0cf860be8cf01f456dfff8e162e004 results in the "runcmd" stanza not to be executed.

(feel free to get in touch should you like to play with an instance displaying the problem on Eoan)


The merge of the datasource's extra_config field (https://git.launchpad.net/cloud-init/tree/cloudinit/sources/DataSourceExoscale.py#n124) is erroneous: instead of *overwriting* the cloud_config_modules entry from the cloud.cfg file/user data, the cloud_config_modules should be *merged*.
An additional difficulty being that we insert a two-elements list (["set-passwords", "always"]) and it needs to be merge with a list containing just "set-passwords".
