Add support for creating EC2 Instances / ASGs #109

It would be nice if:

  • The AWS Service Operator came pre-installed in all EKS's Control Planes
  • There is a CRD in the AWS Service Operator to provision EC2 Instances / ASG
  • There is a Higher Level CRD to provision Nodes to EKS (which builds upon the aforementioned EC2/ASG CRD). With this approach, creating EKS clusters becomes easier, as we can declaratively provision the nodes (the same as if we were using Terraform or CloudFormation, but within Kubernetes tooling itself) to the cluster.

Thanks @santiagopoli really interesting idea, I'm labeling it operator/nodegroup. Any interest in giving it a go to build it? All you have to do is take the CloudFormation template from and then write a model file like this which describes the CFT and CRD mapping.
