   - needs to be written, seems like RH builds rich initramfs with all modules included

+* add fsadm so 'lvreduce -r' works

+* rewrite '/mnt/local/etc/fstab' so disklayout/diskrestore changes are taken into effect after a reboot
+  - without this, a reboot will go into rescue mode because filesystems cannot be mounted
+
+* implement reserved block count in percentage, rather than fixed sizes
+  - otherwise changing the container (logical volume/partition) size may cause problems because the reserved block count is too high/not proportional to its new size

 == Known issues
 * reboot on Ubuntu rescue media broken

 * running checklayout (eg. every 15 minutes) blocks an mkrescue or format workflow ran at the same time
