Cloned SSD to larder SSD with extending partitions: GPT, Windows 10 Pro + some other partitions (EFI boot, Linux /boot and some other Linux non root partitions). Boot partition was the last one. There was unpartioned space at end of source drive.

Result: last partition (ext4) was expanded after cloning to all available space up to very end which resulted of boot partition of size of many GB.

Additional info:
* clonezilla 3.35.2-3
* upstream bug report:

Steps to reproduce:
- leave end of drive unpartioned
- clone to larger drive (Expert options + -k1)

For me last partition spilled to entire end of drive (so I got huge boot partition).
This task depends upon
