Bug description:
  All new installs of 16.04.

  [Test case]
  1) Install Ubuntu 16.04 on a system
  2) Validate that the size of the /boot partition is greater than or equal to 
512MB; should be somewhere between 512MB and 1GB, close to 768MB.

  [Regression potential]
  This may adversely affect installs on tiny disks, by taking up more space for 
the /boot partition than was previously taken, at the cost of  / or /home. As 
such, failures to install due to insufficient space on a partition, or failure 
to partition a disk that was previously working should be investigated as 
possible regressions.
  This is a corner case in general since there is no requirement to allocate a 
separate partition for /boot in the default configuration, and if you are using 
a non-default configuration where /boot must be a separate partition, you 
probably also don't have a disk so small that an additional 256MB of disk usage 
is a problem.


  The installer (in 16.04 and 17.10) creates a separate /boot partition,
  when required, of only 487M. This ends up being rather small when you
  using the following equation to estimate a minimal size allowing for
  reasonable room for further growth.

  (2*(3*kernel + 4*plymouth-carrying initrd + bootloader))
