[PATCH 0/3] flash-kernel: support running in a chroot + local db overrides


I wrote these ages ago, possibly even at dc12, but held off on them at
the time due to the Wheezy freeze. It's about time I got round to
rebasing them!

First change is to honour FK_MACHINE in get_machine, IIRC it was bdale
who reported that the initramfs hooks weren't honouring this variable.
Moving the check from main() to get_machine() means that everything will
pick it up.

Second is to add a capability to override the global db
via /etc/flash-kernel/db, for my purposes the reason is to be able to
override the boot device on systems (such as the dreamplug) which have
both internal and external mmc. Turns out I even filed a bug with this:

I have push access to flash-kernel.git but I wanted to give folks a
chance to comment first. I also pushed the changes to gitorious, pull
request output appended.
