Extending boot is going to be painful, unless you have unpartitioned
space you can rededicate and you just move the whole thing.  To resize
/boot you'd have to move the partition after it, and that will require
plenty of space or some code to move the whole thing  in chunks (and
you'd have to shrink the next partition as well).

However, I doubt it is necessary.  what is on /boot?  You have 200M of
space on that partition, and it really only needs to hold grub, your
kernel, and your initrd.  Maybe you have a bunch of old kernels lying
around?  You have room for about a dozen of them.  I always rotate
through two sets so that I always have one I can boot off of...
