Override the foreman_url hostname

URLs in provisioning templates (PXE menus etc) currently use the setting
foreman_url as a base. It should be possible to override this for systems in complex networks that may not have a consistent view of Foreman's hostname.
- a parameter on the host or domain that overrides the hostname
- an attribute on the subnet
Related to #1969 (overrides of puppetmaster hostname).

We are highly interested in a fix here. We have pretty complex network structure where some areas are completely firewalled off from central Foreman (Satellite6 in our case) server, but have access to local Capsule. Some areas also lack DNS completely, so we need to be able to provide IP Addresses for the installation up to the point where we can run a %pre script in kickstart to add some hard coded /etc/hosts entries.
