Passthrough-enable for nova.conf mustache template is not correct

Bug Description

This change added the definition of a section in the nova.conf mustache template file to enable the passthrough settings.

The template as-is has two problems:
- the comment are not rendered at all. If there is comment in the passthrough configuration the resulting nova-conf file instead of reporting the comment it reports "repeats for each section "
- as all variables are HTML-escaped by default in a mustache template we want to use the triple braces to rendere unscaped HTML

here an example that shows what I described above:
  "nova": {
    "config": [
      {"section": "DEFAULT",
       "values": [
            "comment": "this is a comment",
            "option": "snapshots_directory",
            "value": "/mnt/state/var/lib/nova/tmp"

 repeats for each section

I cannot reproduce the bug stated.. I get this when running the given json through os-apply-config:

Clint, thanks for the review.
You are right that the escape problem is solved by os-apply-config but the problem about comments which are not rendered is still there.
As you can see from your test the comment is not rendered at all.
I moved, in the fix, the comment before each option so as we can specify a comment at key level, that is what is done in other templates for other images, like for example for the keystone template (tripleo-image-elements/elements/keystone/os-apply-config/etc/keystone/keystone.conf)

If you agree I'd leave in the patch the triple braces as that doesn't harm and it seems to me more clear and more close to the mustache syntax.
Do you agree with me?

If so I'll amend the description of the bug.

OH! I didn't realize the comment was intended to be rendered! :-P

And agree, the triple braces seem to be the norm, so we'll leave that. Thanks for clarifying.

    Fix the nova.conf mustache template

    The nova.conf mustache template is not correct in the section that enables the
    passthrough settings.
    The template has two problems:
    - comments are not rendered
    - as all variables are HTML-escaped by default in a mustache template we want
      to use triple braces to return unescaped HTML.

    This matches
