[arch-dev-public] [signoff] mkinitcpio 0.7-1, device-mapper/lvm2 2.02.85-3, dmraid 1.0.0.rc16.3-2, mdadm 3.2.2-2, v86d 0.1.10-2

This is a huge release and should stay in testing for a while. I want to
point out two significant changes:

1) We now have a build() function instead of an install() function - the
latter was an unfortunate conflict with the install utility. The hooks
in the repository have been adjusted, but backward-compatibility code is
in place (a deprecation warning will be printed). All these packages
have conflicts=(mkinitcpio<0.7).

2) We now use bsdcpio instead of gen_init_cpio. This obsoletes the
gen_init_cpio package and adds a dependency on libarchive. This also
speeds up the image generation considerably.

Other changes include massive cleanups and fixes, code refactoring, and
changes that should finally make the -b (basedir) option useful.

Please test and sign off.

Here comes the full shortlog:
