Bug#409980: Undocumented command line options
There are several command-line options recognized by casper that are not
documented. This patch adds documentation for these features to the
casper(7) man page. I have attempted to group these options logically
with related features already listed in the man page.

.BI "live-media-offset=" BYTES
This way you could tell casper that your image starts at offset BYTES
in the above specified or autodiscovered device, this could be useful to
hide the debian-live iso or image
inside another iso or image, to create "clean" images.
+.BI "live-media-timeout=" SECONDS
+Set the timeout in seconds for the device specified by "live-media=" to
become ready before giving up.
.BI "locale=" LOCALE " | debian-installer/locale=" LOCALE
Configure the running locale as specified, if not present the
live-media rootfs configured locale will be used and if also this one
misses casper behave as "locale=en_US.UTF-8"
was specified. If only 2 lowercase letter are specified (like "it"), the
"maybe wanted" locale is generated (like it:IT.UTF-8), in this case if
also "keyb=" is unspecified is set
with those 2 lowercase letters (keyb=it).
+.BI "access=" ACCESS
+Set the accessibility level for physically or visually impared users.
ACCESS must be one of v1, v2, v3, m1, or m2. v1=lesser visual
impairment, v2=moderate visual impairment, v3
=blindness, m1=minor motor difficulties, m2=moderate motor difficulties.
.BR "netboot[=" nfs "|" cifs ]
This tells casper to perform a network mount. The parameter
"nfsroot=" (with optional "nfsopts="), should specify where is the
location of the root filesystem. With no args, wi
ll try cifs first, and if it fails nfs.
