Description of problem:
Enabling-disabling a (Red Hat) repository contains lots of spinning hourglasses and is irritatingly slow. One such slowness comes form the fact katello contacts sequentially and everytime CDN to get some repos info:

Please either:
- make the calls parallel (why each one takes 2seconds and is made sequentially?)
- or cache the data locally until manifest is updated (such that the calls dont need to be repeated next time)
- or both

Fixes #17696 - Make Candlepin API calls smaller

This change affects the redhat repositories page. Prior to this, the
calls were huge, and they were slowing down the load a lot (because of
parsing of the returned data and writing it to logs)

This takes advantage of 'include' in Candlepin's API to request only the
info we need
