This is the result of an idea I had at fudcon. It turns off storage and
installs to /mnt/sysimage/ or whatever you have previously mounted on it.

I am using this with a modified version of livemedia-creator to make live isos
and various disk images. It speeds up the creation time for an iso by 'a bunch'
because it removes the need for copying the whole filesystem from one place to
another during the install sequence. It should also allow anaconda and
livemedia-creator to be run inside a mock environment because it removes the
need for device-mapper which has caused problems in the past inside a mock.

My plan for these patches is to apply them to both master+blivet and to
f18-branch and to do a new build of f18 (18.37.12) so that people using
livemedia-creator with f18 can take advantage of this without waiting for f19.
