Description

Adding a FAT32 partition on the installer image, as we have on ARM recovery images currently, means:

  • We can drop a copy of the license there
  • We can drop a README.txt on there pointing to the installation docs
  • Users can put a config.xml backup on there to restore during the installation.

I've added LICENSE files inside the 36Mb FAT32 partition and changed code to be able to restore a /config.xml of /conf/config.xml from it during installation.

Tested on 2.4.5.a.20181114.2257, works as expected.

Just tried this rescuing a 2.4.4-p2 config.xml

System installed correctly, and config was restored, but packages that were installed were not automatically reinstalled, leaving a half broken system (namely haproxy).
Restored the identical config file via the gui, and post reboot all packages were correctly reinstalled automatically.
