Configures available ephemeral devices on a cloud server

This cookbook will identify the ephemeral devices available on the instance based on Ohai data. If no ephemeral devices are found, it will gracefully exit with a log message. If ephemeral devices are found, they will be setup to use LVM and a logical volume will be created, formatted, and mounted. If multiple ephemeral devices are found (e.g. m1.large on EC2 has 2 ephemeral devices with 420 GB each), they will be striped to create the LVM.

ephemeral_lvm::default in the runlist and the ephemeral devices will be setup.
node['ephemeral_lvm']['filesystem']- the filesystem to be used on the ephemeral volume. Default:
node['ephemeral_lvm']['mount_point']- the mount point for the ephemeral volume. Default:
node['ephemeral_lvm']['volume_group_name']- the volume group name for the ephemeral LVM. Default:
node['ephemeral_lvm']['logical_volume_size']- the size to be used for the ephemeral LVM. Default:
'100%VG'- This will use all available space in the volume group.
node['ephemeral_lvm']['logical_volume_name']- the name of the logical volume for ephemeral LVM. Default:
node['ephemeral_lvm']['stripe_size']- the stripe size to be used for the ephemeral logical volume. Default:
This recipe sets up available ephemeral devices to be an LVM device, formats it, and mounts it.

- Changed a misleading error message where no ephemeral disks were found.
- Update lvm cookbook dependency to
