The CentOS 6 kernel can't do online partition resizing so you need to
install the cloud-initramfs-growroot and cloud-utils-growroot packages to
do the partition resizing in the initrd. I'm the package maintainer of
those two in EPEL6, let me know if you run into any issues. After the
partition is resized, cloud-init will grow the filesystem to the max
possible size. Newer kernels don't require the initrd-hack and cloud-init
can to both partition and filesystem resizing post-initrd.
