CLOUDSTACK-9386: DS template copies dont get deleted in VMware ESXi with multiple clusters
and zone wide storageJIRA TICKET:

### Introduction
In some production environments with multiple clusters it was noticed that unused templates
were consuming too much storage. It was discovered that template cleanup was not deleting
marked templates on ESXi.

### Description of the problem
Suppose we have multiple clusters `(c1, c2,...,cN)` on a data center and template `T` from
which we deploy vms on `c1.`
Suppose now that we expunge those vms, and there's no other vm instance from template `T,`
so this was the actual workflow:

1. CloudStack marks template for cleanup after `storage.cleanup.interval` seconds, by setting
`marked_for_gc = 1` on `template_spool_ref` table, for that template.

2. After another `storage.cleanup.interval` seconds a `DestroyCommand` will be sent, to delete
template from primary storage

3. On `VmwareResource`, command is processed, and it first picks up a random cluster, say
`ci != c1` to look for vm template (using volume's path) and destroy it. But, as template
was on `c1` it cannot be found, so it won't be deleted. Entry on `template_spool_ref` is deleted
but not the actual template on hypervisor side.

### Proposed solution
We propose a way to attack problem shown in point 3, by not picking up a random cluster to
look for vm but using vSphere data center. This way we make sure vm template will be deleted
in every case, and not depending on random cluster selection
