            Bug ID: 195831
           Summary: the mkisoimage.sh scripts always put a fstab file on
                    generated images

diffs to various mkisoimage.sh scripts

When a release is generated, one of the steps near the end is typically
creation of bootable iso filesystems.  (Obviously, depending on exactly
what is being built.)

The different mkisoimage.sh scripts alway place a fstab file in the
generated iso filesystem - ideally this would only happen when generating
a bootable iso filesystem.

I've had a local patch for quite a while to change the behavior to only
generate the fstab files when the filesystem is bootable.  I use the same
mkisoimage.sh script to generate an upgrade.iso filesystem too, and that
isn't bootable, and should not have a fstab placed on it.

Anyhow, a patch to implement this is attached.
