      [archiso] Add optional OverlayFS support · a637bdb8
      Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi authored
      
      
      This is the first attemp to test overlayfs in archiso.
      The current dm-snapshot mode is keep and is enabled by default,
      while the new mode is enabled via "-s sfs" to mkarchiso.
      No new boot parameters are added, since archiso hooks detects
      if the .sfs file is for dm-snapshot (airootfs.img inside)
      or for overlayfs.
      Persistence is supported in overlayfs mode using the same options
      (cowlabel or cowdevice), but warning while in dm-snapshot mode,
      only one file is used (airootfs.cow), in overlayfs mode internal
      files for workdir/ and upperdir/ are allocated, so you can not use
      VFAT or NTFS.
      
      To test this, you need to enable [testing] in pacman.conf from
      releng profile and edit build.sh then add "-s sfs" in make_prepare()
      
      Look at:
          setarch ${arch} mkarchiso ${verbose} -w "${work_dir}" -D "${install_dir}" prepare
      Replace with:
          setarch ${arch} mkarchiso ${verbose} -w "${work_dir}" -s sfs -D "${install_dir}" prepare
      
      The build requires just half of space that the build for dm-snapshot,
      since there is no ext4 img ;)
      
      Just to remember: there is no space gain in .sfs (just about 2M)
      
      There is at least one thing during boot with machine-id service:
      Dec 24 03:31:39 archiso systemd-machine-id-commit[183]: Failed to unmount transient /etc/machine-id file in our private namespace: Invalid argument

      releng: Add intel-ucode to packages.both · 6ad005de
      Thomas Bächler authored
      Ucode updates correct problems with the processor. Without this (or a firmware update),
      some machines fail to work in a stable manner. Make sure that the installation is smooth
      by providing the ucode on the live system.
      
      (While we're at it, sort packages.both alphabetically.)
