Description of problem:
It would be nice to have resize2fs included in the rescue mode tools, in
order to make it possible to resize the root filesystem. To do it, I had to
copy resize2fs (and e2fsck; see bug 51400) from the mounted root filesystem
to the runtime ramdisk, unmount the root filesystem, and then run (e2fsck
and) resize2fs.

parted, which includes the needed resize functionality, will be in the next
release's rescue mode.
