ktest: Add native support for syslinux boot loader
I installed Fedora 17 which no longer supports grub v1. I worked with grub2 for a while, but there's so many issues with it and automated rebooting, that I decided to switch to syslinux. Instead of using the REBOOT_SCRIPT and add customized changes to get syslinux booted, I thought it better to make ktest aware of syslinux and add options to simplify the use of syslinux on a target test box. Acked-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com> Cc: John 'Warthog9' Hawley <warthog9@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
