Bug description:
  [Impact]

  * Ubuntu images are identified generically as 32- or 64-bit Linux with
  a 2.6 kernel rather than Ubuntu 32-/64-bit images.  Tools that consume
  the images can not perform OS-specific actions based on the current
  metadata.

  [Test Case]

  $ apt-get install virtualbox

  $ wget http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/xenial/current/xenial-server-
  cloudimg-amd64.ova

  $ vboxmanage import --dry-run xenial-server-cloudimg-amd64.ova
  ...
  Virtual system 0:
   0: Suggested OS type: "Linux26_64"
      (change with "--vsys 0 --ostype <type>"; use "list ostypes" to list all 
possible values)
  ...

  We would expect the following after the fix:
  Virtual system 0:
   0: Suggested OS type: "Ubuntu_64"

  [Regression Potential]

   * Low: A user downloads the image with the change and checks the OS
  type field to see that Ubuntu is a marked as a generic 2.6 kernel
  Linux image and now we will have changed "Linux26_*" to "Ubuntu_*".

  [Original Description]
  The OVF files produced by cloud-images currently contain:

  <OperatingSystemSection ovf:id="100" vmw:osType="other3xLinux64Guest">
        <Info>The kind of installed guest operating system</Info>
  </OperatingSystemSection>

  The OVF specification has entries for Ubuntu, and that usually allows
  client machines to customize the host using whatever their method is.

  The specific entries for Ubuntu 64 bits are:
  - ovf:id: 94
  - ovf:osType: ubuntu64Guest

  The specific entries for Ubuntu 32 bits are:
  - ovf:id: 93
  - ovf:osType: ubuntu32Guest
