BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1708699

When linux-image-*-azure is installed, the correct RDMA driver that must
be used is still unknown. To workaround that, the modalias for the RDMA
drivers are overridden with an install command, that later can be
replaced by walinuxagent with the correct alias.
