Add the option to use existing DHCP reservations
|Assigned to:||Ohad Levy||% Done:||
Currently , there is no option to use existing DHCP MAC addresses allocations.
Foreman should be able to use / override DHCP allocations in order to compatible with environments with pre configured DHCP allocations.

fixes #786 - Add the option to use existing DHCP reservations
note that this patch only ensures that the ip used is the same as the
existing dhcp record.
if there is a mistmatch in what foreman expects in the reservation vs.
actual state, #944 should kick in.

The system should check the current network databases and only perform the operation if this is required. It could also use this information to prompt the IP/mac/hostname
An easier option would be a reconciler page similar to Gini's that would let you a) delete b) leave alone c) sync Foreman to the network values.
