/run is too small for some clouds

Bug Description

When cloud-init kicks off, it creates a daemon that uses /run to store data. It's very easy for the cloud provider to provide too much information in the config-drive/metadata service which causes cloud-init to crash due to /run not having enough space to store all the information. Currently, the /run mount looks like this:

tmpfs /run tmpfs rw,nosuid,relatime,mode=755 0 0

In order for cirros to work on DreamHost's OpenStack product, this needs to be bumped a bit. We are patching this to result in the following:

tmpfs /run tmpfs rw,nosuid,relatime,size=400k,mode=755 0 0

It would be fantastic if we could get this change committed upstream.
