because of bug #1489855, trying to use persistence with Ubuntu ISOs that were released
before August 2019 will only result in rescue mode during boot - You have been warned!
- Other distros may work with persistence as long as they use a Debian-like or Ubuntu-like
method, and, in the case of Ubuntu-like, if they use casper with the #1489855 bugfix.
- Persistence and ext formatting support should still be considered EXPERIMENTAL at this stage.
