Split up offline installation tarball

Currently all ICP images are delivered as a single tarball. This means that a 10GB tarball, extracted to 28GB has to be loaded on the boot node to get to a single image, icp-inception, and then the process has to be repeated on all master nodes to get to the image manager.

This takes a substantial amount of time, and causes significant network and disk activity completely unnecessarily. 

Consider instead delivering 3 tarballs that can be loaded as appropriate:

1. boot (icp-inception)

2. master (image manager)

3. everything else that needs to be loaded into private registry

This should shave a significant amount of time off the installation and improve the user experience.
