Fix netconf guess_network_os to use ssh_config if supplied. #55199

When attempting to set up a connection using netconf, if the ansible_network_os is set to either nothing or default, ansible will attempt to guess the network_os.

The guess consists of connecting to the target node and using the returned capabilities to try to determine which network_os should be use.

The initial connetion used to guess the network os ignores the ssh_config specified in ANSIBLE_NETCONF_SSH_CONFIG (or ansible.cfg)

As a result this initial connection will fail causing the play to fail.

This PR makes the following changes:

  1. Modifies the network_os_guessing to use a ssh_config file if specified.

  2. Triggers network_os guessing when the network_os is auto (instead of default). Allowing the user to specify that ansible use the default ncclient driver and not try to guess the network os.

Fixes #54859
