The dosfstools -d feature has been shown to be buggy, and even with Nitin's
fixes applied to get directory hierarchies working, it still generates
images that fail dosfsck and don't work with FAT32.

This series presents an alternative means of populating our live images
using mcopy from mtools.

Applies on top of my earlier pull request:
[PATCH 0/4] Fix grub efi menu, kernel messages, and live image dosfsck

The following changes since commit 91e14125b3e90601742f705d2556f5f05e20b944:

  bootimg: Use dosfsck to clean up the generated live image (2011-12-15 22:02:11 -0800)

I should add that I've built this with the fri2 BSP from the meta-intel
layer and tested EFI booting on 3 different platforms and legacy
SYSLINUX booting on 2 platforms - all using the same core-image-minimal
hddimg.
