Bug Description

Binary package hint: cloud-init

booting under kvm, I get the following:
2011-03-01 02:35:57,308 -[WARNING]: Failed to get filesystem type via ['blkid', '-c', '/dev/null', '-sTYPE', '-ovalue', '/dev/root']

This was booted under kvm from the ovf image with command line changed in grub.
$ kvm -drive file=disk.img,if=virtio,boot=on -curses -serial file:out.console
# then modifying grub with:
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-5-virtual root=LABEL=uec-rootfs ro console=ttyS0 ds=nocloud cc: password: passw0rd
