    Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi authored
    Its add support for downloading the ISO image via HTTP/FTP with curl or download *.sfs files.
    The files are downloaded on /run/archiso/curlspace (tmpfs) and setup a loop dev from it
    (like in archiso_loop_mnt) in the ISO case, or just do a bind mount to
    /run/archiso/bootmnt in the other case.
    
    This hook must be located after archiso_pxe_nbd in mkinitcpio.conf, in that way
    NBD is the default.
    
    New bootparm:
    * archiso_curl_url=(first form)
        archiso_curl_url=http://192.168.0.7/archlinux/iso/archlinux.iso (absolute form)
            Use an absolute URL. Fetch the entire ISO
        archiso_curl_url=ftp://${pxeserver}/archlinux/iso/archlinux.iso (relative form)
            Use the as IP the same server where PXE reside.  Fetch the entire ISO
    
    * archiso_curl_url=(second form)
        archiso_curl_url=http://192.168.0.7/archlinux/iso/unpacked
    
     (absolute form)
            Use an absolute URL. Where unpacked (an example name) is a directory where
            ${archisobasedir} ("arch" by default) is located with all *.sfs.
            This fetch only needed files.
