I'm not sure about the semantics of combined snapshots and live-rw. If
live-rw is already mounted and snapshots are restored, they will end up
on live-rw. However, if the snapshot files are not removed, they will
be restored into live-rw again next boot. Either that or the snapshots
will be refreshed on shutdown and contain a redundant copy of the data
stored in live-rw.
Does it even make sense to use live-rw and snapshots together?
