Bug Description

[SRU Justification]
livecd-rootfs creates an /etc/update-motd.d/51-cloudguest in all cloud images that injects wrong information into the motd about Ubuntu Advantage that is not consistent with current product offerings.

This file should just be dropped from all cloud images going forward, and we should avoid adding such things in the future in livecd-rootfs sauce.

This should be done before the last cloud images are rolled for 14.04 prior to trusty entering ESM.

[Regression potential]
Nothing should depend on this file's presence in the cloud images.

[Test case]
Verify that images still build with this change.

https://launchpad.net/~canonical-foundations/+livefs/ubuntu/xenial/ubuntu-cpc/+build/164716 is a successful image build using the livecd-rootfs from xenial-proposed and the ubuntu-cpc project, which exercises the code path changed in this SRU.

https://launchpad.net/~canonical-foundations/+livefs/ubuntu/trusty/ubuntu-cpc/+build/164730 is an image build using the livecd-rootfs from trusty-proposed. It fails to build, with an error unrelated to the SRU in question and which is a preexisting failure (as seen at https://launchpad.net/~canonical-foundations/+livefs/ubuntu/trusty/ubuntu-cpc/+build/164732, a build without trusty-proposed enabled). The failure also happens at a point in the build past the point in the code that has been changed by the SRU (the failure is during a binary hook, the SRU change is to a chroot hook, all chroot hooks are executed before all binary hooks).

So I am considering this verification-done despite the build failure.
