Bug Description

On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, the maas_remote_syslog_compress cron job
generates pointless emails because it tries to recompress files that
are already compressed, e.g.:

| From: <email address hidden> (Cron Daemon)
| Subject: Cron <root@polong> find /var/log/maas/rsyslog -type f -mtime +2 -exec bzip2 '{}' \;
| To: <email address hidden>
| Date: Sat, 15 Feb 2014 04:30:02 +0000 (UTC) (13 hours, 55 minutes ago)
| Message-Id: <email address hidden>
|
| bzip2: Input file /var/log/maas/rsyslog/kelpie/2012/12/14/messages.bz2 already has .bz2 suffix.
| bzip2: Input file /var/log/maas/rsyslog/kelpie/2012/12/20/messages.bz2 already has .bz2 suffix.
| bzip2: Input file /var/log/maas/rsyslog/kelpie/2012/10/18/messages.bz2 already has .bz2 suffix.
| bzip2: Input file /var/log/maas/rsyslog/daitya/2013/04/19/messages.bz2 already has .bz2 suffix.
| bzip2: Input file /var/log/maas/rsyslog/daitya/2013/04/18/messages.bz2 already has .bz2 suffix.

Simple patch to skip already bzip compressed logs in the cron job is attached here.
