Fix for cloudinit.d freezing terminal output

After booting launch plans with a replica_count, terminal output would stop
working and we would have to run `reset' to fix it.  It appears to be related to
subprocesses using the same standard input.  Fix it by passing /dev/null as
standard input to subprocesses.
