      [archiso] Add archiso_pxe_curl hook · 8eb4c624
      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
              ${archisobasedir} ("arch" by default) is located with all *.sfs.
              This fetch only needed files.
          archiso_curl_url=ftp://${pxeserver}/archlinux/iso/unpacked (relative form)
              Use the as IP the same server where PXE reside. Where unpacked (an example name)
              is a directory where ${archisobasedir} ("arch" by default)
              is located with all *.sfs. This fetch only needed files.
      
      * curlspace_size= Set a size for a tmpfs filesystem where files are downloaded.
