Unburst a Manually Burst Cloud Node

Unburst nodes that were created manually when they are no longer needed.

Before unbursting, drain the cloud node of any running jobs, otherwise jobs that are running when the node is unburst will fail.

Cloud nodes burst manually remain up and running until explicitly unburst.
