Bug Description

During proposed SRU testing, I discovered an upgrade issue for EC2 customers who don't reboot their instances after cloud-init upgrade and instead issue the commandline 'systemctl restart cloud-init'.

The following traceback is caused by the new instance document changes added in rev

What this changeset didn't account for is our pickled ec2localdatasource from earlier get_data runs, not persisting an Ec2LocalDatasouce.identity attribute so subsequent get_instance_id calls wouldn't see this attribute on the class yet.
