Description of problem:

We need to include details on how to set all configuration parameters for a nodes /etc/origin/node/node-config.yaml and masters /etc/origin/master/master-config.yaml  file. 

Also include example syntax for these settings as seen in our upstream git hub.

Description of problem:

Customers who need / wish to set up GC (https://docs.openshift.com/enterprise/3.1/admin_guide/garbage_collection.html) for there environment often run into [0] ([1] is one solution to this). 

Because ansible overwrites or alters the configuration (after GC is configured - directly on the hosts) you loose your GC configuration. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1

How reproducible: 100% 

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Passing: openshift_node_kubelet_arguments = [{'image-high-gc-threshold': '90'}, {'image-gc-low-threshold': '80'}] 

Actual results:

This does not seem to be parsable to yaml in the installer. 

Expected results:

This should set the GC configuration based on [2] and [3].

Instead of a list, arguments are passed as a dictionary with list values.

openshift_node_kubelet_args={'image-gc-high-threshold': ['90'], 'image-gc-low-threshold': ['80']}

We might want to expanded this to point out KubeletArguments are key value pairs that will be passed directly to the Kubelet that match the Kubelet's command line arguments.  These are not migrated or validated, so if you use them they may become invalid. These values override other settings in NodeConfig which may cause invalid configurations [1].
