maintboot runs commands outside of the current OS, with exclusive
access to the system and hardware. This can be useful to run
maintenance tasks, like repartitioning, in a controlled environment.
Maintboot builds an appliance on the fly from a list of packages
(using supermin). It then loads the appliance with kexec, bypassing
the bios, and runs the maintenance script in that new context.
