Allow rootfs to expand to the backing partition #61

merged 3 commits into from Dec 4, 2019

With this, the rootfs will expand to the size of the partition it is written on.

Note: NO fdisk or similar partitioning tool is being used. This is only a dumb "resize to the partition size" operation. This should be safe on all targets.

One issue, though, is that this is always being done on boot, using this initrd method.

This probably should rather be done in an installer. This is especially relevant considering that stage-1 is not being updated with rebuilds currently.
