Hmm... maybe make paramName= a more meaning one, e.g., persistentTag or
something? Actually, I was hoping to use boot param to give full names,
not just tags, but that might be more than a quick fix.
I have other concerns, which relate to the following questions:
- when both persistent partitions and snapshot files exist, which one
take the preference?
- live-snapshot creates different snapshot files each time. when more
than one snapshot files exist, which one take the preference?
To put everything on the table, I wish another boot param to name swap
files to use on boot up as well - I'll cover it in details in another
