All of the volumes will be SSD from now on, large or small (technically,
gp2 type as defined here
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/EBSVolumeTypes.html) but
no, it's not currently possibly to specify the type via user data.
Regardless, to specify the *volume_type* the volume needs to exist a priori
and so if it an SSD type was created, that's what it's going to be.
