Good this is really the debug info during "trouble" case then, or
development / debugging.  The first one we can likely incorporate into
Qi directly one way or the other and the second one the best answer is
probably this commandline-appending file from the rootfs but really it's
rare it is needed.

| I like to setup for example:
| p1: only to hold the kernel
| p2: rootfs1
| p3: rootfs2

The hidden problem with this is that /lib/modules in the rootfs-es will
not automatically match the kernel in p1.  For that reason separate
kernel part needed by DFU for example is not good: better to have the
kernel embedded into the rootfs and update it inside the rootfs
filesystem by package, even though you are doing that per-rootfs.

| Then it would be nice to be able to switch which rootfs to use by just
| updating a file in p1.

This can also be done without creating a new settings file by marking
partition table entries as bootable DOS-style, or using the skip
partition UI button.
