The error message put out by installboot when attempting to
install boot blocks on a mounted file system when securelevel > 0
is cryptic. It should be easy to tell the user that the
problem is that the securelevel is too high and complain about
that directly to alleviate confusion.
Attempt to install bootblocks on a mounted file system when
securelevel is > 0. Get cryptic error message.
If the device exists but can't be written, check if
securelevel is > 0 and the device is mounted, then complain
