Description

Currently we do support hsfs and ufs boot archives. Using hsfs relies on external tool (mkisofs) and using ufs is complicated and slow because of lofi + ufs and having to have carefully crafted image size etc. cpio is easy to create, quick and easy to read, however, the downside is missing support for hardlinks.

This is work from Josef 'Jeff' Sipek.
