Description of the change

Enable booting from a USB stick.

Change the binary file to create a usb-hdd type image instead of an ISO, and add a binary_local-hook to make the UUID for the livefs is written into the image so that initramfs can find it on boot.

NB: I have not tried using that on a CD. However, it does boot with KVM just fine (only one disk device is needed for the boot, too).

Enable booting from USB.

Cody provided the new script that ensures the UUID initrd needs to
find the livefs is in the image. The default maverick live-helper
does not do this even though it's required.
