What this PR does / why we need it:
This PR allows users to specify NTLM-formatted usernames for VSphere.

Previously, when you tried to provide a NTLM-formatted username the kube-cloud-controller manager would produce the following error:

14:26:12.175060       1 controllermanager.go:159] error building controller context: cloud provider could not be initialized: could not init cloud provider "vsphere": 3:6: unquoted '\' must be followed by new line

How can this PR be verified?
This can be verified by using a NTLM-formatted username as a parameter in the manifest. Here is an example ops-file:

- type: replace
  path: /instance_groups/name=master/jobs/name=cloud-provider/properties/cloud-provider/vsphere/user?
  value: "vsphere.local\example-user"

Is there any change in kubo-deployment?

Is there any change in kubo-ci?

Does this affect upgrade, or is there any migration required?
