[arch-releng] archiso2dual becoming obsolete?

I will deprecate this tool. Since in few days with dm-snapshot (if 
become to master), the directory scheme for isos is "dual friendly". 
Instead of reworking archiso2dual I will push this feature integrated 
into "configs/releng/build.sh" avoiding some code duplication.

My idea is build them directly from "${work_dir}/iso" instead of 
mounting isos, then do lots of tasks depending on profile selected and 
finally build dual-iso.

So the workflow can be something like (under 64 bit):

* 0) bind mount bind some directory so can be shared between two chroots 
(32 and 64).
* 1) build 32 bits isos under chroot (work_dir will be work/i686)
* 2) build 64 bits isos under chroot (work_dir will be work/x86_64)
* 3) build dual isos in any chroot. (work_dir will be work/dual)
