[Libguestfs] [PATCH febootstrap 0/8] Add support for building an ext2-based appliance



This patch series adds support for outputing an ext2-based appliance
from febootstrap-supermin-helper.  The usage is very simple, you just
add '-f ext2' flag and the name of the appliance file that you want to
write to.

The implementation uses libext2fs, which is a very low level way to
create ext2 filesystems from scratch.  We'd like to use libguestfs,
but that's an obvious reason why we can't do that :-)

These patches are *not* finalized yet.  However I doubt that patches
0001-0007 will change very much (and especially not 0001-0004), so
those can be reviewed.

Rich.
