Atari partition tables have very broad specifications, and can
spontaneously show up on uncleared disks with "garbage" data. There have
been reports of misinterpreted AHDI partition tables before (see  and
), usually as an unintended side-effect of using non-zeroed disks.
Users of this specific partition scheme are unlikely to be on AWS
instances, so we should disable them.
Ensure that CONFIG_ATARI_PARTITION is not set in /boot/config-$(uname -r)
Unset CONFIG_ATARI_PARTITION in debian.aws/config/config.common.ubuntu
There could be unexpected dependencies on Atari partitions that are
impacted by this change. Considering Atari hardware hasn't been produced
in a long time, and is unlikely to be used in AWS instances, the
regression potential should be very low.
