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.
