Bug Description

When snapd is undoing an installation, it doesn't clear the variables which are set through 'snapctl set'.

The scenario is: the first boot was interrupted by power outage, and snapd tried to recover. A snap has a hook which calls 'snapctl set' to record a counter for later use. When snapd undoed the installation of this snap, it didn't clear configuration options (here is the counter). Later the snap will get a wrong counter and led to a unexpected condition.
