quota kernel modules not available in linux-aws

Bug Description

The quota kernel modules (quota_v1 and quota_v2) are not available in the linux-aws kernel, because the modules are contained in the generic kernel's linux-image-extra package.

There is no -extra package for linux-aws, so the quota modules should be promoted to the main linux-image package for linux-aws.

I might be missing something here, but this seems to suggest that the only way to get disk quotas working on an AWS machine using the official linux-aws kernel is to compile your own kernel including them -- there's no package to install.

This seems kind of problematic, disk quotas are a pretty important thing.

Am I missing something? Is there some other way to install disk quota support for this kernel?
