Werk #11243: Bulk Dicovery: Align caching options with discovery page

On the Bulk Discovery WATO page you could set the options Use cached data if present and Do full SNMP scan for SNMP devices. The latter one had no effect since Checkmk version 1.5.0. The idea behind the option Do a full SNMP scan was contacting the SNMP device and ignoring existing caches. This behaviour is implemented behind the option Do a full service scan on the WATO Discovery page.

Moreover the Bulk Discovery page was inconsistent with the WATO Discovery page - independent of above options. Thus we removed both options Use cached data if present and Do full SNMP scan for SNMP devices and add the option Do a full service scan in order to adapt the behaviour to the discovery page. Now both pages work the same way.

Please note: With this new option a service scan of SNMP devices may take more time as before because now this device will be contacted for real.
