New Tor image won't boot

Description

We are using our own script called build.sh [1] to re-bundle the Ubuntu AMI with Tor and some other packages.

Building and publishing a Tor image isn't a problem, but an EC2 instance running the Tor image will fail to boot. It seems like the Tor image is given the wrong filesystem label.

When trying to boot, the system complains that it can't find the root device and then drops to a busybox shell. The filesystem label it should have is "uec-rootfs". The filesystem label it gets when we re-bundle it is "cloudimg-rootfs".

Turns out, cloudimg-rootfs was the correct filesystem label. I've updated this in the build script, and fixed some other bugs as well.
