partman-auto: partition sizes too small

We recently had installation reports where the size of either the root
partition (in the "separated / and /home" recipe) or the /usr
partition (in the "multi" recipe) are too small to fit a full desktop

Attached is a rather conservative patch to those recipes that raises
the max size of / to 10Gb (in "home" recipe) ad that of /usr to 9Gb
(in the "multi" recipe).

I didn't make any precise calculation: I just roughly guessed this
would be OK.....so feel free to alter these sizes to whatever is
appropriate. But, what's important: we MUST change these defaults.

PS: there is at least one reported bug, which I assigned to
partman-auto, that mentioned these "too small partition" problems.

PS2: the same should probably done to partman-auto-lvm

PS3: sorry for sending this without any full check, without the
rightbug numbers...and for not committing the needed change, but
working offline with a 5 minutes connection window each day at the
local McDonalds restaurant doesn't help working very efficiently..:-)
