  ubuntu-core tarballs to be renamed to ubuntu-base

Bug description:
  [SRU Justification]
  To remove confusion with the ubuntu-core snappy product, the ubuntu-core root tarballs are being retroactively renamed to ubuntu-base.  This requires an SRU of livecd-rootfs to align with the changes in ubuntu-cdimage, so that daily/point release builds of the ubuntu-base tarballs continue to be possible.

  [Regression potential]
  Minimal; this is a minimal change to livecd-rootfs to recognize the ubuntu-base project name, all other code is left unchanged.

  [Test case]
  1. Run an ubuntu-base build with -proposed by running 'DIST=[xenial|trusty] PROPOSED=1 for-project ubuntu-core cron.daily-live --live'
  2. Confirm that the tarball builds successfully and contains a rootfs.
