The growpart of this package version doesn't work with sfdisk from util-linux 2.26.1
I've forked the mkinitcpio-growrootfs package from GregSutcliffe's repository and
modified the growpart code from the Ubuntu cloud-guest-utils package to work with sfdisk 2.26. sfdisk does not longer provide any functionality for CHS (Cylinder-Head-Sector) addressing. Furthermore this growpart take care about the sfdisk 2.26.1 bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1211405
