Add Network Teaming configuration for hosts
Description of problem:
When creating a new host (GUI):
Hosts > New Host > Interfaces > + Add Interface > Type...
Pull-down menu currently does not include "Teaming" as an option, only "Bond".
Network Teaming is a new option in RHEL7  and customers would like to leverage this option when provisioning physical hosts.
This option would also need to be added to hammer. Current available option is Bond:
hammer host create [...] --interface="identifier=bond0, \ ip=22.214.171.124, \ type=Nic::Bond, \
And add it to the kickstart_networking_setup snippet, under Hosts > Provisioning Templates.
Attaching a sample kickstart snippet found in the "Foreman Users" Google Group that was sent to mhulan.

Hate to bump this, but its been 2 years and Teamd is the recommended bonding/teaming method in RHEL ect. So would be great for me to be able to make use of this on my foreman managed nodes, Like I do my other nodes.
GOING TO SECOND THIS, again this has been YEARS and all the RHEL docs recommend teaming. Foreman should support network teaming by now in the web interface setup.
