Remove the _VM suffix from target workload names and paths

Remove the _VM suffix from target workload names and paths

Adding this suffix  may have made sense when physical machines were first virtualised, but nowadays most migrations are V2V or V2C, and a such this setting has become redundant. In the Migrate Client, there is a UI preference to change or remove it, but there is no equivalent setting for the Migrate Web UI or PTM.

This suffix should be removed completely in both Migrate and Transformation Manager, or changed to a user configurable setting with a default null value. It must apply to VM names and all file paths where it is used currently
