  Config drives created on RHEL/CentOS 7.1 can't be found

Bug description:
  Depending on the exact version of dosfstools used when preparing a
  config drive FS, it may not be detected by Cirron on VM boot. This is
  due to the fact, that Cirros currently performs a case-sensitive
  comparison of FS labels:

  and mkfs.vfat from CentOS will create an uppercase label "CONFIG-2".

  Apparently, dosfstools won't let you use lowercase labels on CentOS,
  while it works fine on Ubuntu:

  All the descriptions of the config drive format mention "config-2",
  not "CONFIG-2":

  Nothing is said about whether case-sensitive or -insensitive string
  comparison should be used for comparing of FS labels.

  Looks like FAT standard does not specify how labels should be treated,
  but Windows (at least XP) stores those in upper-case:

  "For FAT volumes, volume labels are stored as uppercase regardless of
  whether they contain lowercase letters. NTFS volume labels retain and
  display the case used when the label was created."

  E.g. in Debian this was considered to be a bug and was fixed:;msg=2

  It even was accepted to upstream:

  and made it to 3.0.22 release.
