LGTM, but I am concerned about fallout. Needs to be tested with updates, of course.
^^^ Looks good to me and have same concern. We should test install, upgrade, rollback, etc. Perhaps we can provide instructions for making a USB image to fix this should things go south? ;-)

Right now I cannot, since the patches span a variety of repos. I've already been hand-testing the install and upgrade from ISO use cases. What will need further testing is "real" upgrades if it properly switches boot-loaders. I'll probably disable the public push of nightlies for a couple days and do some internal testing once its merged though.
