dyn-netconf IP re-writing runs too early (before load_modules)

Bug Description

currently the dyn-netconf script that re-writes IP= and BOOTHOOK= runs at init-top.

per initramfs-tools(8)
  | init-top the scripts in this directory are the first scripts to
  | be executed after sysfs and procfs have been mounted. It also
  | runs the udev hook for populating the /dev tree (udev will keep
  | running until init-bottom).

since we were not declaring a dependency on udev, udev might not even
be running at that point, so the 'udev_wait' that we do there will
probably be useless.

The fix here I think is to just run at 'init-premount':
  | init-premount happens after modules specified by hooks and
  | /etc/initramfs-tools/modules have been loaded.

This seems like a sane place to run, and then we'll make sure that
the specific modules are loaded also (ie, 'load_modules' will have run).

  * cloud-initramfs-growroot: support growpart exit status of '1'
    indicating "no-change-necessary"
  * cloud-initramfs-dyn-netconf: run at init-premount rather than
    init-top to ensure that 'load_modules' has been run and udev is
    running (LP: #1116426)
