Disabling GracefulNodeShutdown on a node

Talos Linux enables Graceful Node Shutdown Kubernetes feature by default.

If this feature should be disabled, modify the kubelet part of the machine configuration with:

machine:
  kubelet:
    extraArgs:
      feature-gates: GracefulNodeShutdown=false
    extraConfig:
      shutdownGracePeriod: 0s
      shutdownGracePeriodCriticalPods: 0s
