We found a couple of things:

1) The udev persistence rules are still there, those need to go -
otherwise snapshot + boot of snapshot is a problem

2) The cloud-user account is still being created, we need to disable that.

3) cloud-init is, at the moment, setup to disable root access - but that
does not seem to be happening in some cases, whereas in other cases it
does. We need to figure that out.

4) there is no grow-root, while this should not be a blocker for the
existing / present images - we should fix this for 6.5

Comments / thoughts ?
