  poor performance of resize2fs on 12.04

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “linux” source package in Precise:
Status in “linux” source package in Quantal:
  Fix Released
Status in “e2fsprogs” package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  I just ran a simple single instance launch, and on raring i saw:
    cc_resizefs.py[DEBUG]: Resizing took 0.450 seconds
  on precise:
    cc_resizefs.py[DEBUG]: resize took 6.509745121 seconds

  Those are real time reports from /var/log/cloud-init.log for a resize
  up to 10G root from the ~1.4G that the images have built in.

  This is known-fixed in current versions (quantal and later).
  The changes were done to upstream e2fsprogs under debian bug 663237.

  Bug 978012 is a general request for a newer e2fsprogs, and this bug is
  a specific request for the performance improvements.
