The common case for deployments in virtual environments, like clouds, is tuning partition layout and filesystem size during instance deployment or first boot to use all available space.
We need to enable this behavior for cloud images and images for hypervisors.

That should be fairly simple as there is only one partition, so delete the partition, create a new one with higher end block and call resize2fs
