Make it possible to edit/customize fstab for the ISO and after installation with d-i

I want to make an pro audio optimized live iso which is also able to be installed.

In the world of linux audio, JACK (jackd) is an important tool and the readme of it says that I need to add a line in fstab to make it work properly:

/Welcome to JACK, the Jack Audio Connection Kit.

Please see the website (http://jackit.sf.net/) for more information.

NOTE: If you are using reiserfs or ext3fs or anything except ext2fs
for the directory where JACK puts its temporary files (/tmp by
default), then the JACK team recommends that you do *one* of the


Mount a tmpfs on /tmp.  You should have a lot of swap space available
in case some programs try to write very large files there.
In your /etc/fstab add a line:

  none        /tmp    tmpfs   defaults        0       0

You'll probably want to reboot here, or kill X then 'mount /tmp'.

---- OR ----

Alternatively, you can do this without affecting your /tmp:

# mkdir /mnt/ramfs

[edit /etc/fstab and add the following line]
none       /mnt/ramfs      tmpfs      defaults  0 0

Then add --with-default-tmpdir=/mnt/ramfs to the JACK configure
line when you build it.  No clients need to be recompiled.


_Failure to do one of these could lead to extremely poor performance from JACK,_
since its normal operation will cause bursts of disk I/O that are
completely unnecessary. This suggestion can also be used by ext2fs
users if they wish./

--- Begin Message --- as of wheezy, this is now possible since live-boot can make use of fstab.d and hence doesn't overwrite the fstab anymore.
