callback: better waiting for devices
on power8 systems we were failing to mount partitioned images.
The reason was mostly that we were looking for nbd0p1 too quickly.
The change here is to wait with 'sfdisk' to return success on the
nbd device. That should then indicate it is ready to use.
We use it to determine if 'auto' (no --partition flag) should
be 0 or 1. We can then wait more intently for the block device
to appear as we know whether or not nbd0p1 *should* appear.

sync packaging with what is in xenial and split euca2ools pieces
Syncing the packaging with Ubuntu will just make management easier.
Then, we split the cloud-publish-* packages to a cloud-utils-euca
package. Because these were a part of cloud-image-utils, anything
that used that (such as for cloud-image-query) would end up pulling
in euca2ools. The largest pain of that was in getting python2 into
ubuntu cloud images.

callback: use qemu-nbd --read-only for safer read only
use qemu-nbd --read-only when using qemu and mounting read-only.
The value in this is that the block device appears read-only in this

callback: add '--overlay' to use overlayfs mounts
--overlay means you can easily leave changed files around.
$ sudo rm -Rf mp; sudo mkdir mp;
$ sudo ./mount-
image-callback d.img \
--overlay --mountpoint=mp --system-resolvconf \
chroot mp -- apt-get update -q
$ find mp -type f
lib/apt/ periodic/ update- success- stamp
also useful to perform operations on a read-only fileystem
or one that doesnt have enough space in it without resizing.

callback: add '--mountpoint' flag to mount to an existing dir
instead of always getting a temporary directory, support the user
specifying the mountpoint.
image-callback --mountpoint=mp -- tar -C mp -cf - .

callback: fix regression in attempt to give better error
previous commit tried to give a better error message by ensuring
that the target image was a file, but did so before the 'img' variable
Simple fix is to move the check till after the variable is set.

callback: pass --format when invoking qemu-nbd
qemu-nbd now kind of needs the --format flag for sanity.
Additionally, in some cases (such as not specifying --format)
qemu-nbd would leave the device connected, but exit non-zero.
- Branch format:
- Branch format 7
- Repository format:
- Bazaar repository format 2a (needs bzr 1.16 or later)
