[Jenkins-infra] Bigger disk space for eggplant

Eggplant runs Wiki and JIRA, both of which accumulate data over time.
Yet this virtual machine only has 10GB storage.

For the longest time, we've been relying on various maintenance
scripts to aggressively compress log files, ship them off to other
hosts, and so on to save precious space. In the last week, Nagios told
me that the disk consumption went up beyond 80% mark, and I'm really
scraping the bottom of the barrel to get more free space.

I wonder if Tyler can use his usual charm and ask OSUOSL to give us,
say, 5GB more added to this volume. That'd cut some administration

(eggplant doesn't seem to use LVM, so I'm not sure how to go about
adding more space without significant disruption. Can /dev/vda be just
expanded and vda3 can grow up to fill the rest of the space?
