Bug Description

Binary package hint: cloud-init

My Setup
I am using the official Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meekat EBS AMIs (ami-ccf405a5,ami-cef405a7) on
64bit t1.micro and
32bit m1.small

Both instances have: cloud-init v 0.5.15-0ubuntu3

Nothing additional besides the defaults set of tools available on these AMIs was installed.

On every boot i get:
cloud-init start-local running: Mon, 28 Mar 2011 03:33:16 +0000. up 2.40 seconds
no instance data found in start-local
init: cloud-init-local main process (374) terminated with status 1

cloud-init start running: Mon, 28 Mar 2011 03:33:17 +0000. up 2.75 seconds
found data source: DataSourceEc2
mountall: Event failed

* Starting AppArmor profiles [80G 2011-03-28 04:00:52,257 -[WARNING]: unable to convert swap to a device
2011-03-28 04:00:52,268 -[WARNING]: 'mount -a' failed

Lastly even though the t1.micro instance type has only one drive attached to it, e.g. /dev/sda1 the "/". It appends "/dev/sdb" to be mounted over "/mnt" in fstab as well as swap. According to Amazon's Instance Guide with t1.micro instance there is neither swap nor /mnt drive.

How to reproduce the errors?
Use same AMIs and launch an instance, get system log from aws console of /var/log.

The reason that cloud-init wrote that entry in /etc/fstab is that the metadata service on t1.micro includes 'ephemeral0', even though there is no ephemeral0.

I'm fixing this by:
a.) special casing "ephemeral0" and device does not exist
b.) changing the warning on swap conversion to a debug statement (so it wont go to console)
