CVS commit: src/distrib/common/bootimage

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   tsutsui
Date:           Sun Apr 22 05:24:39 UTC 2012

Modified Files:
        src/distrib/common/bootimage: Makefile.bootimage

Log Message:
Add two optional variables for liveimage/installimage builds:
                optional MBR bootcode which should be installed by fdisk(8)
                (default: empty)
                - specified MBR_BOOTCODE must exist in ${DESTDIR}/usr/mdec
                - if MBR_BOOTCODE is not specified,
                  MBR_DEFAULT_BOOTCODE (default: mbr) will be used
                  if the target ${MACHINE} has the one in /usr/mdec

                options passed to installboot(8), e.g., -o console=com0
                (default: empty)
Proposed by Brook Milligan on current-users@:

Also make USE_MBR work on ${MACHINE}s which don't have the default
/usr/mdec/mbr bootcode. (no such port has the liveimage target yet though)

XXX: tools fdisk(8) implicitly uses host's /usr/mdec/mbr for the default
XXX: bootcode even for non-x86 targets if host is x86
