Description

If we use, in different techniques generated by ncf-builder, the same components with the same values, thenthe reporting cannot distringuih which reports should match which technique, and we get "unknown" and "no answer" states

The Techniques generated by ncf-builder have a unique name, which is also the bundle name
Rudder generates a csv file for reporting, in the format

technique_name;;class_prefix_${key};;@RUDDER_ID@;;component name;;component key

So far, we used only the class_prefix_${key} as a key to extract data from the this csv file, to get the line to report. Problem: we may have several time the same class_prefix_${key}, if we use in different technique the same component with same value.

Since we know the technique_name (we are calling it in the bundlesequence), we can use it in the key to search the csv file

However, we don't want to pass the technique name down the chain of generic method, as it would be clunky, so we inject it in the bundle current_technique_report_info, by calling this bundle with the current ncf technique name
And then, we change the logger_rudder to retrieve this value and expose the proper report line

This ticket part is to add the bundle that stores the current technique name, called current_technique_report_info(technique_name) and use the information in the logger_rudder

It needs the modification that is in ncf in #5389 taht calls current_technique_report_info(technique_name) before calling the technique
