About the growpart issue that we talked about, I proposed a
backport[1] for "cloud-utils" on #784004. I don't know if it will be
accepted (and I do remember that you don't like to rely on fixes from
backports, that's why I didn't asked you to sponsor it), but this may
be the only solution at the moment, for something that have been
annoying us for quite a few months.

I've also noted that this backport alone wouldn't solve the problem
with this AMI, because it is partitioned with GPT. In this case, we'll
need the command "gsdisk" from the package "gdisk".
