Bug#907672: Rebasing cloud-init to the latest one

Hi Martin and Debian team,
Thanks for your quick response.
The v0.7.9 of cloud-init was released on 2016, after that therere many fixes and functions are added.
One of the problems is that on the Debian9.5, the 0.7.9 version of cloud-init will go to fail at the local stage during the gos customization process.
It had been tested on the latest version 18.3, the basic functions of gos customization can be implemented.
There are many fixes during the period from 0.7.9 to 18.3. Not only for gos customization, but also for all the other providers. Details pls refer to https://bugs.launchpad.net/cloud-init.
Currently Ubuntu 18.04 has already rebased to cloud-init 18.3, Amazon Linux rebased to v18.3, Sles 15 rebased to v18.2, and other Linux distros also has rebased or plan to the latest cloud-init.
If you have any concern for v18.3 stability we could do some regression test together if needed.
Wait for your response.
