New feature that adds a method on InlineModelAdmin for providing initial data for the inline formset. By default there is no implementation, although one could be implemented to use GET parameters like get_changeform_initial_data, but it wouldn't be trivial due to the list nature of formset initial data.

Summary: Add InlineModelAdmin.get_formset_initial_data().Add a hook to customize the admin's formsets parameters

I think we should add a more general customization hook that allows customizing the parameters passed to the formset initialization (which includes initial data). That could also allow the use case of #27240 which requires adding form_kwargs': {'request': request} to formset_params.
