  race condition in dep8 test

Status in cloud-utils:
  Fix Committed
Status in cloud-utils package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in cloud-utils source package in Disco:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:

   * As can be seen in dep8 tests on published results [1], there seems
  to be a race condition on tear down of at least one of the growpart
  tests.  We seem to see it most on ppc64el [2].  I'm attaching cloud-
  utils-ppc64el-0.31-0ubuntu1.log that came from [3].

  [Test Case]

  * It seems that the test that fails (at least in the 2 cases I saw) is

  The relevant output in the log is this:

      unmount /tmp/test-growpart.VyOylU/mp
      clearing parts [1] from /dev/loop0
      delpart /dev/loop0 1
      delpart: failed to remove partition: Device or resource busy
      FAIL: ./test/test-growpart failed. pt_type=dos resizer=sfdisk

  I've copied the relevant portion of the log to attached 'short.log'.

  [Regression Potential]

  * Minor potential as the only changes being added are "udevadm
  settle". This will likely add a bit of more time to execution but
  won't change the logic of what was already being done (just serialize
  udev events).
