cloud-init won't reformat NTFS ephemeral drive on SLES 15

Bug Description

Commit aa4eeb808 (Paul Meyer 2018-05-23 15:45:39 -0400 710) detects that the platform doesn't support NTFS volumes by looking for the appropriate error message in the exception it catches. The exact syntax of that error message differs between RHEL (the target distro for Paul's merge) and SUSE:
  RHEL mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
  SUSE mount: /dev/sdb1: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'

As a result, cloud-init on SUSE VMs in Azure doesn't properly detect that the distro doesn't support NTFS and thus will not reformat the ephemeral volume on Azure.
