In python 2.6, os.path.relpath('/proc', '/) will output '../proc'
where in python 2.7 it will output 'proc'.

Retry cleanup commands if they fail

Add a new try_fail_repeat function that wraps cleanup system commands
and retries them if they fail. There are cases where commands like
dmsetup, umount and losetup -d may fail with device is busy. In most
of the cases, sleeping for halve a second and retrying does the job.
