 I wonder if this should really be fixed. Currently, network setup is saved
 after unpacking sets (get_and_unpack_sets()).
 If I set up networking for the installer, I wouldn't expect it to do that for
 the installed operating system, too.
 And at that state, the filesystem isn't mounted anymore, and mounting it just
 for that purpose, rechecking fstab, etc., is much work for a single task
 nobody really expects.
 Imho, the new sysinst could be designed wrt to this issue (configuration
 after the installation itself finished), but having it in current sysinst is
 much (useless) work.
