okay. the problem was an old work dir. i cleaned it up and rebuilt
images and now they boot.

new core and netinstall iso's at http://build.archlinux.org/isos/

i tried running `aif -p automatic
-c /usr/share/aif/examples/fancy-install-on-sda` but ran into the
following issues:

all filesystems get created but after the supposedly mounting of them,
when i check with df, i see:
df: /mnt/boot: no such file or directory
df: /mnt/home: no such file or directory 

a bit later it shows them all of the same size, ie they are all
pointing to the same filesystem (/mnt, which is the root LV)

2) transient resolver errors

3) booting fails (no bootable media found)

i guess some stuff has changed with device naming, how cryptsetup works
or whatever.
anyway, that's about all the time i have for today. until next time.
