bootloader packagefs: Implement PrintErrorVarArgs.

The package kit calls this function to print errors it hits
when reading packages. We should never hit this in "normal
operation", but it should help with debugging #14993.

EFI: Initial test EFI application

* Only set HAIKU_BOOT_PLATFORM to bios_ia32 if not defined
* Add gnuefi build feature
* Introduce BOOT_LDFLAGS, and move options for passing to linker
into ArchitectureSetup
* x86_64 compile fixes for warnings in boot loader
* loader/elf.cpp: don't include ELF32 support when targeting EFI
* relocation_func.cpp: copy of the relocation code from gnuefi
to make _relocate extern "C", and avoid including <efilib.h>
* boot_loader_efi.ld: copy of gnuefi's elf_x86_64_efi.lds,
modified to include support for C++ constructors, etc. Keep in
sync with the gnuefi package

Switch package file accessor classes to use BPositionIO

* PackageFileHeap{Reader,Writer} as well as Package{Reader,Writer} and
their implementation and super classes do now internally use a
BPositionIO instead of a FD to access the package file. This provides
more flexibility needed for features to come.
* BPackageReader has already grown a new Init() version with a
BPositionIO* parameter.

boot loader: Add safe mode blacklist submenu

It's a browser for the system package content, where entries can be
selected to blacklist them. The selected entries are removed from the
packagefs instance in the boot loader, so that e.g. selected drivers
won't be picked up. The paths are also added to the safe mode driver
settings and will be interpreted when the system packagefs instance is
mounted by the kernel.

packagefs: Support blacklisting entries in packages

In each installation location, it is now possible to create a settings
file "packages" that allows to blacklist entries contained in packages.
The format is:

Package <package name> {
EntryBlacklist {
<entry path>
...
}
}
...

<package name> is the base name (no version) of the respective package
(e.g. "haiku"), <entry path> is an installation location relative path
(e.g. "add-ons/Translators/FooTranslator").

Blacklisted entries will be ignored by packagefs, i.e. they won't appear
in the file system. This addresses the issue that it may be necessary to
remove a problematic file (e.g. driver, add-on, or library), which would
otherwise require editing the containing package file.

The settings file is not not "live". Changes take effect only after
reboot (respectively when remounting the concerned packagefs volume).

The PackageNodes weren't destroyed.

packagefs: Add caching for the package file heap reader

* ReaderImplBase:
- Add virtual CreateCachedHeapReader() which can create a cached
reader based on the given heap reader.
- Rename HeapReader() to RawHeapReader() and add HeapReader() for the
cached heap reader.
- Add DetachHeapReader() to allow a clients to remove the heap
reader(s) after deleting the ReaderImplBase object.
* packagefs:
- Add CachedDataReader class, which wraps a given
BAbstractBufferedDataReader and provides caching for it using a
VMCache. The implementation is based on the IOCache implementation.
- Use CachedDataReader to wrap the heap reader. For file data that
means they are cached twice -- in the heap reader cache and in the
file cache -- but due to the heap reader using a VMCache as well,
the pages will be recycled automatically anyway. For attribute data
the cache should be very helpful, since they weren't cached at all
before.


# d59e0feb 20-May-2013 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

package: Suppress version mismatch errors where V1 is supported

* Add flags parameter to Init() of BPackageReader and friends.
* Introduce flag B_HPKG_READER_DONT_PRINT_VERSION_MISMATCH_MESSAGE and
don't print a version mismatch error when given.
* package extract/list: Use the new flag.

hpkg format: compress the whole heap

Instead of handling compression for individual file/attribute data we
do now compress the whole heap where they are stored. This
significantly improves compression ratios. We still divide the
uncompressed data into 64 KiB chunks and use a chunk offset array for
the compressed chunks to allow for quick random access without too much
overhead. The tradeoff is a limited possible compression ratio -- i.e.
we won't be as good as tar.gz (though surprisingly with my test
archives we did better than zip).

The other package file sections (package attributes and TOC) are no
longer compressed individually. Their uncompressed data are simply
pushed onto the heap where the usual compression strategy applies. To
simplify things the repository format has been changed in the same
manner although it doesn't otherwise use the heap, since it only stores
meta data.

Due to the data compression having been exposed in public and private
API, this change touches a lot of package kit using code, including
packagefs and the boot loader packagefs support. The latter two haven't
been tested yet. Moreover packagefs needs a new kind of cache so we
avoid re-reading the same heap chunk for two different data items it
contains.

Rename BBlockBufferCache and friends to *Pool*

Also move BBlockBufferPoolNoLock into BHPKG namespace with the other
classes. Not sure why it wasn't there before.

Boot loader packagefs: Fix ".." lookups

* PackageDirectory::Lookup(): Support "." and ".." lookups.
* PackageLoaderContentHandler::HandleEntry(): If the entry doesn't have
a parent directory, use the volume's root directory directly. This
makes PackageVolume::AddNode() superfluous and also always passes a
non-NULL parent directory to PackageNode::Init().


# 441b85e1 19-Jun-2011 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Assign node IDs to packagefs nodes

Fixes module loading. elf_load_image() checks the node ID to verify
whether an image was already loaded, so giving all nodes the same ID
only gets one image loaded. The IDs don't necessarily match the ones the
kernel packagefs assigns, which could be a problem later on.


# cbc85916 19-Jun-2011 Ingo Weinhold <ingo_weinhold@gmx.de>

Add boot loader packagefs support

* Add pread().
* Add Node::ReadLink() to read a symbolic link path.
* Add Directory::LookupDontTraverse() and make Lookup() non-abstract.
Lookup() is implemented via LookupDontTraverse() and Node::ReadLink().
* Adjust all FS implementations accordingly.
* Add a packagefs implementation. Unlike other FS implementations it
isn't a pseudo-module, but provides a function to explicitly mount a
package file (packagefs_mount_file()).
* Finish BootVolume::SetTo() implementation, mounting the package file
and replacing fSystemDirectory.

Now the boot loader can load the kernel and boot modules from a packaged
system. The kernel boots up to the point where the boot volume is
mounted.
