Setting CNI daemonset environment variables like `WARM_IP_TARGET or HTT_PROXY` by reading a config file from the host ? #216

Is it possible to create a config file on the host like /etc/eks/xxx.config and dynamically populate those environment variable when CNI pod is starting ?

By default, we eks cni daemon set is started in kube-system namespaces. When launching the worker nodes behind proxy or if are using multiple subnets or HTTP_PROXY variables, we will have to go through the hassle of running kubectl edit/patch ds/aws-node -n kube-system and set those environment variables manually which requires user/role to have system:masters permission.

One more advantage of having config file on the host is, if I have multiple autoscaling groups with multiple instance types and if I have to set WARN_ENI_TARGET or WARM_IP_TARGET variables different, I can easily manage those from reading from the config file instead of centralized environment variable on the daemonset manifest yaml.

I'd like to see WARM_IP_TARGET set as a tag in the ASG.
