Configure Pay-as-you-go Behind Proxy

To identify if a machine is PAYG or not, SUSE Manager needs to use sudo to run instance-flavor-checktool.

If the customer is using a http proxy, they need to make sure this setting is correctly managed by sudo, because by default most environment variables are disregarded.

One way to do it, is to add a file /etc/sudoers.d/keep_proxy.conf with the following content:

# Preserve any possible proxy configuration
Defaults env_keep += "http_proxy https_proxy no_proxy"

This ensures the proxy related environment variables are preserved during the privileges escalation.
