    extract ISO feature: make sure *.squashfs files exist + support older…

    … ISOs too
    ISOs before release 2011.12 used /live/ for storing squashfs files,
    releases starting with 2011.12 use /live/*/ (where "*" corresponds
    to the release name). Test whether such files exist before accessing
    them and while adding the check also add support for releases older
    than 2011.12.
    Thanks: Charles A. Hewson <> for the bugreport

    Revert "Include linux16.mod in GRUB image file x86_64-efi.img"

    This reverts commit bf8e3bc.
    Breaks grml-live:

    | GRMLBASE/45-grub-images FAILED with exit code 1.
    See for
    the reason why /usr/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/linux16.mod doesn't exist.

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

    …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

    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
    Note: existing make-fai-nfsroot.conf files will be moved
    to make-fai-nfsroot.conf.outdated to avoid possible data loss.

    DEBORPHAN/98-clean-chroot: purge removed packages

    Make sure we don't have any removed but not-yet-purged packages left,

    packages and will fail doing so.

    SW: add ewf-tools to GRML_FULL

    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.
