Feature #4685: Umbrella: New software update feature
Feature #4690: Umbrella: New FreeNAS build / packaging / update creation process
Where should the package database go?
Right now, I've got the package database going into /data -- it's writable, has space, and doesn't get shadowed by a mfs mount (unlike /etc/ and /var).
However, if we go to having a separate dataset for /data, this will cause issues with the setup. In that case, it would need to go to a new location. It generally only needs to be writable when doing an update or install, but it needs to accurately reflect the root filesystem.

Okay, it's going into /data/pkgdb
That was easy.
We'll put the configuration file for updates in /data. This will be used and manipulated by the update code, possibly at the behest of the GUI.
