VMware: post custom script isn't run correctly

Bug Description

In DataSouceOVF.py, it could launch the user defined script before the customization and after the customization. In current design, the post customization script is added as the rc.local service and launched after the VM reboot. But actually the cloud-init doesn't need to reboot the VM, so the post customization script is not launched as we expected. We need to leverage the cc_scripts_per_instance module and let it to trigger the post customization script.
