Permanent way for increasing resources for speech-cr-stt-am-patcher deployment

Client need to apply speech patches every time Speech service upgrade issue(requires uninstall and install). To reduce the effort, client log tickets to get a permanent way tor speech patches.

We get response from Speech team: 

Unfortunately there isn't a good permanent solution for this right now. TemporaryPatches which are used in WA and WD are not possible in Speech as Speech doesn't use the oppy framework.

While it is possible to modify the cpu/ephemeral storage/memory values, it is not straightforward to do so as the limits depend on the requests. And we did confirm that changes to the am-patcher configmap (i.e. increasing the number of threads) are overwritten by the Speech operator. As such, we believe the best solution for now is to apply the workaround when needed for larger AM training jobs. After training is successful, the speech operator can be scaled back up until the next training job.

We are planning some improvements / design changes to AM training in the near future -- we will take these shortcomings into consideration during that process.
