Description of problem:
We are using a proxy to download all content from the internet.
The proxy is configured by the satellite-installer using the --katello-proxy-url option.
This works correctly for all parts except the pulp_streamer processes. Even the pulp metadata download worked with the proxy settings.
But when it comes to download an RPM file on the client.

On the pulp server with streamer we see:

On our upstream proxy, there is no request to cdn.redhat.com visible. This makes me believe that the proxy configuration is not used by pulp_streamer.
Doing a grep for proxy configuration in /etc/pulp shows that the pulp_streamer has no proxy configuration defined:
[crash] root@li-lc-1578:/etc/pulp# grep -Rl proxy
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use external proxy to connect to CDN, makes sure to not allow direct internet access from the satellite
2. Create clean satellite with the --katello-proxy-url option to the the external proxy
2. Enable on_demand in settings, this must be before any repo is created to have it set as default
3. Sync RedHat manifest
4. Select some RedHat repos to sync
5. Create content view and activation key
6. Assign RedHat repos to a content hosts
7. yum repolist
8. yum update (or install, just make sure a package will be downlaoded)
Step 7 repolist works
Step 8 package download fails
