      Random imagezip hacking: · 27d76461
      Mike Hibler authored
      1. Make imagezip (and imageunzip) understand LILO bootblocks.
         Imagezip will create relocation information for all the absolute
         blocks that LILO embeds in the partition.  Imageunzip will correctly
         relocate those locations when laying down the new image.  Thus
         Linux slice images can be layed down anywhere on the disk (as can
         BSD images).
      
      2. Because #1 is incompatible with the old imageunzip, I bumped the
         imagezip format version number (to 3) on images that contain relocations
         (i.e., slice images).  Make sure you have a new imageunzip to unzip
         new slice images.  Whole disk images are still created as version 2
         since they contain no relocs and thus are no different than before.
      
      3. Added -N option to imagezip to create slice images without any
         relocations.  [ We could create our Emulab images this way, since we
         don't have any mechanism for, or reason to, let the user choose which
         partition to load an image in.  Hence our slice images always wind up
         at the same offset on the disk and relocations are unnecessary. ]
         Note that there is no significant expense in either time or space for
         relocations, this option was more of a debugging thing.
