Support for OKE images as worker node base images

You can now select OKE images as the base images for worker nodes when creating and updating clusters and node pools. Using an OKE image minimizes the time it takes to provision worker nodes at runtime when compared to platform images and custom images. OKE images are optimized for use as worker node base images, with all the necessary configurations and required software. The use of OKE images reduces worker node provisioning time by more than half when compared to platform images. OKE images are provided by Oracle and built on top of platform images.
