Description

The preseed image is missing some boot args and there is some unnecessary logic in there.

I'm not entirely qualified to judge that, but it certainly looks reasonable to me.

How will we go about fixing this on the existing cards?  Should we make a "pre-seed" pxe_config, script, and image?

I also added a usb stop statement.  This might help with the kernel not initializing the usb properly once in awhile which is probably from a dirty init state made by uboot putting its hands on the usb bus before its handed to the kernel.

This will depend on the outcome of 819545 and if we end up needing to alter the partition table.  If part table doesn't need changing, then yes, we can script this into a mozpool pxe_config and image.

I have pushed a new preseed image to the puppetagain puppet masters with the fixed boot.scr.

It can be accessed here: http://puppetagain.pub.build.mozilla.org/data/bmm/preseed/uboot-preseed.2013010200.img.bz2

The last preseed contained a minor flaw. Use this preseed instead: http://puppetagain.pub.build.mozilla.org/data/bmm/preseed/uboot-preseed.2013010300.img.bz2
