Create EBS volumes as root and local on boot-time

Registered by dan kim on 2011-10-20

BootFromVolume feature can boot instance with pre-created volumes.
Now it should be needed to support auto-create volumes when booting instance.
It should copy the image into the volume on boot-time NOT use pre-created snapshot or pre-created volume.
