Bug Description

This is a feature freeze exception for Cloud-init for Saucy. The SmartOS/Joyent datasource needs to format the ephemeral device. In order to do this properly, cloud-init needs to be capable of partitioning and formating the ephemeral device.

The required change will be to add to cloud-init's configuration modules "cc_disk_format.py", which will handle basic disk partitioning and formating. Additionally, new documentation will land. The decision over whether or not to format will be controlled by user-data and/or a built-in datasource.

The impact of not having support for disk formating is that on SmartOS/Joyent hosts, the ephemeral device will not be prepared.

Benefits:
- SmartOS/Joyent ephemeral disks will be formated at provisioning time
- Users will be able to define the filesystesm of the ephemeral disks
