CLOUDSTACK-10107: For VMware VMs add devices without unit number (#2288)

When VMs are deployed or nics are plugged, using a static unit number
may cause device configuration errors. This fixes a previous limitation
that more than 7 nics/networks could not be added to a VM.

Per the API docs, `unitNumber` need not be set:

> The maximum number of NICs that a vSphere based virtual machine is 10 virtual NICs.  However a 
> CloudStack created Instance cannot start if there are greater than 7 NICs attached.  More that 7 NICs can be 
> attached via CloudStack if the VM is already running it is only the start process that fails if more than 7 NICs 
> have been attached. 
> If a VM has greater that 7 NICs a management server log message similar to the following is created: 
> StartCommand failed due to Exception: java.lang.RuntimeException
> Message: Invalid configuration for device '10'.
> java.lang.RuntimeException: Invalid configuration for device '10'.
> The vpxd.log on the vCenter shows:
