I verified this on an x86 server by testing that the output is the same before and after the update (see below). I also gave a heads-up to the MAAS team to consider adding this to their CI (see: https://bugs.launchpad.net/maas-images/+bug/1702976/comments/11), though I don't know if that occurred. @Andres: was your team able to run any tests with this?
