Description

AI tries to install driver packages into the live installation environment. Since the driver packages include the corresponding manpages, this fails:

<AI_E Jul 12 13:37:16> Action install failed for 'usr/share/man/man7d/audiohd.7d' (pkg://openindiana.org/driver/audio/audiohd):
<AI_E Jul 12 13:37:16>   OSError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system: '//usr/share/man/man7d/tmpzhC59x'

To make this work again, either make /usr writable in the installation environment, or set facet.doc.man=false when creating the AI image. Ideally, the distro_const/auto_install scripts would be adapted to support facets, which would also require supporting facets in osol_install/transfer_mod.py. Alternatively, the distro_const/auto_install/ai_pre_boot_archive_pkg_image_mod script could just set the facet after image creation.
