Hello Juerg,

I have tested the resize feature and it does not work. The dracut 
module does it job and resizes the partition, but the filesystem is not 
`resize2fs /dev/vda1` worked a treat, I could add it in 
/var/lib/cloud/scripts/per-once/, but sounds a bit redundant since 
cloud-init should do this.
I do have resizefs in cloud_init_modules.
