    Generate /etc/grml_live_version after FAI execution + drop /etc/dpkg/…

    mika authored
    …dpkg.cfg.d/unsafe-io code
    FAI uses /etc to detect whether a chroot exists or not and will
    skip debootstrap stage if /etc exists already. This causes serious
    problems if the user doesn't have a BASEFILE, therefore we can't
    edit files inside /etc before running FAI. :(
    As a result:
    1) generate /etc/grml_live_version *after* FAI has been executed
    2) drop /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/unsafe-io related code.
    As stated in commit 9269536
    | Enable --force-unsafe-io for dpkg
    | While this might help on resource constrained systems, no performance
    | impact has been measured during an unscientific test on a well-geared
    | machine.
    it does not seem to be that relevant. But even more important: it
    doesn't work for systems without BASEFILEs because FAI skips the
    debootstrap stage if /etc exists already, so we can't generate
    /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/unsafe-io *before* running FAI. Unless
    someone comes up with benchmarks about real performance impacts
    let's skip adding more fcopy logic...

    Generate make-fai-nfsroot.conf and nfsroot.conf on-the-fly

    mika authored
    FAI 4 uses nfsroot.conf instead of make-fai-nfsroot.conf without
    providing any backwards compatibility. :( So while at it rework
    the way how make-fai-nfsroot.conf is handled:
    * No longer ship /etc/grml/fai/make-fai-nfsroot.conf at all
    * Generate nfsroot.conf based on default settings (can be overriden
    * Provide symlink make-fai-nfsroot.conf pointing to nfsroot.conf
      to support old and new FAI versions at the same time
    * After execution copy generated nfsroot.conf file to log directory
      and get rid of make-fai-nfsroot.conf and nfsroot.conf in
      $GRML_FAI_CONFIG (/etc/grml/fai/ by default) afterwards
    Closes: #4

    DEBORPHAN/98-clean-chroot: purge removed packages

    mika authored
    Make sure we don't have any removed but not-yet-purged packages left,
    otherwise GRMLBASE/03-get-sources might try to download unavailable
    packages and will fail doing so.

    SW: add ewf-tools to GRML_FULL

    mika authored
    It's a kind-of-controversial decision, as this tool isn't exactly within
    the purpose of Grml, *but* ewfacquire might be useful under certain
    situations and it's <=500kB installed size.

    …s regexp module
    The GRUB version provided by Debian/squeeze sadly doesn't support
    the regexp module yet.  Therefore we can't use the file globbing
    pattern to include configuration files.  So instead build a somewhat
    more static loopback.cfg configuration file when generating the ISO.
