Exhausting the task limit

Bug #1717969 reported by Robert Schweikert on 2017-09-18

Bug Description

Depending on distribution the default number of tasks (threads) maybe unexpectedly low or it may be the default systemd setting (512). Given that more and more installers and other code are taking advantage of multiprocessing capabilities it is becoming more likely that during execution of user scripts in cloud-init the task resource limit is reached. This leads to the forceful termination of the process.
