So we have several solutions:

- automate the fix in ansible and/or cloud-init

- upload our own images based on Centos  (bonus point if we can get
them preloaded with all the packages we need)

I will investigate the 1st one, that's just adding "rm" in the right
place, and making sure we reboot the system. Doing a custom image seems
like a bigger task.

Centos folks are already aware of the AWS problem, but maybe not of the
specific way that's broken. I discussed with them, and it seems to be
blocked on some legal discussions. Pandemic and people moving around 
on both side likely didn't help.
