I'm not sure that'll work for us. The image generation is not generally
expected to occur on cloud instances (though in practice it certainly

OTOH, the list of required modules may be small enough for us to
enumerate the ones we need for booting in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules.
I will look into this, and we'll see what it does to boot times.
