Bug Description

breaks cloud builds on armhf in focal due to changes of size of packages in the archive.

[Test plan]
Do a -proposed build of CPC images on armhf. If it succeeds, we're good.

[Where problems could occur]
Increased size of images could cause downstream problems for consumers. However, linux-firmware is not getting smaller, and images in later series already have this new size. Downstream consumers will need to adapt.
