First: Sorry: this is just a BIG patch, no trivial commits

TODO: messages, comments, documentation, archiso2dual, syslinux-iso, 
other changes.

Short description (Highlights):

* good-bye aufs2, welcome dm-snapshot.
* syslinux-iso is not touched, I just done a simple profile "baseline" 
to test
* mkarchiso use "set -e -u"
* isomounts renamed aitab (new syntax)
Field to select squashfs compression (xz, lzo, gzip) or "none" (no 
squashfs is used just raw image)
Field to select filesystem type of "raw" image.fs (ext2, ext3, ext4, xfs)
Field to set free space (in %) or total size of "raw" image.
Fields architecture supports "any".
* New command: "prepare", builds all images (used before iso)
* *.sqfs -> *.sfs (more standard)
* single images looks like dual images (directory scheme)
