So here's a couple patches that will let you swap CDs to load your kickstart
off CD if you're also installing off a CD/DVD. I guess people do this

I've tested it out locally - yes, I had to dust off my CD-Rs because
virt-manager doesn't seem to like you ejecting a virtual CD? Whatever.
Anyway it totally works and stuff.

And it *only* triggers if you're using literally "inst.ks=cdrom[:...]" as a
boot argument, so it shouldn't affect any other boot paths.

First patch adds some helper functions, the second patch uses them to do
