Thanks, then I'll do some modifications (the -rc2 seem to not understand
shell construct like "return $([ "${A}" != "${B}" ])", trivial to fix)
and add CDROM probing (they are not included in /proc/partitions) to
find iso image files inside ISO9660 filesystem on a CDROM, do more
tests and resubmit within two weeks.
