Bug Description

On Ec2 successful deployments, the command cloud-init status hits the following traceback:
cloud-init status
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/cloud-init", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('cloud-init==17.2', 'console_scripts', 'cloud-init')()
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/cloudinit/cmd/", line 853, in main
    get_uptime=True, func=functor, args=(name, args))
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/cloudinit/", line 2279, in log_time
    ret = func(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/cloudinit/cmd/", line 55, in handle_status_args
    status, status_detail, time = _get_status_details(init.paths)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/cloudinit/cmd/", line 114, in _get_status_details
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/cloudinit/cmd/", line 96, in _is_cloudinit_disabled
    return (is_disabled, reason)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'reason' referenced before assignment

In Ec2's case, modules-init is never run because we detect the datasource in init-local timeframe. As a result the status.json looks like this (note that start and finished are both null on mondules-init stage:
 "v1": {
  "datasource": "DataSourceEc2Local",
  "init": {
   "errors": [],
   "finished": 1515706844.3537874,
   "start": 1515706843.7459064
  "init-local": {
   "errors": [],
   "finished": 1515706841.0270455,
   "start": 1515706840.1508064
  "modules-config": {
   "errors": [],
   "finished": 1515706846.916724,
   "start": 1515706846.218318
  "modules-final": {
   "errors": [],
   "finished": 1515706847.6123502,
