Description of problem:
We have seen a bugfix for cloud-init that says start after multi-user.target but it still trying to launch before and causing different problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch aws fedora 25 image gp2 hvm
2. Run a command: sudo systemd-analyze critical-chain multi-user.target
└─systemd-user-sessions.service @5.545s +20ms
└─cloud-init.service @2.592s +2.947s
└─cloud-init-local.service @441ms +2.148s
└─systemd-tmpfiles-setup-dev.service @384ms +46ms
└─kmod-static-nodes.service @341ms +35ms
cloud-init.service nor cloud-init-local.service should be there.
AMI starts up fine, but causing collision issues later when we deploy new things.

This happens on ami-56a08841 us-east-1 image of fedora 25. Image comes up fine, but whenever I deploy some new services it hangs, and I can see above ordering cycle issue in the /var/log/messages.
I think we found the issue. We required cloud-final.service on our services which tries to start cloud-final.service. Cloud-final has a flag to start after multi-user.target, which causes collision.
Now whoever requires cloud-init in their service will face this issue. Is this how we want it? Or should there be a patch?
There is a scratch build available at https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=18380550 that may resolve this problem. Please give it a try and let me know if it resolves this issue.
cloud-init-0.7.9-4.fc26 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 26. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2017-83671c0fa0
Thank you Lars Kellogg-Stedman. This is exactly what is happening when I do not require cloud-init in my services 1400249. Incorrect networking.service looks like being addressed with patch to cloud-init-0.7.8-6.fc25. We will just wait for this package then.
1400249 will resolve it. I will close my report.
