* lots of RAID changes, ref 4d41d2cbd4342e1f1e8e853531526954da3b6829
* +/- keys are keyboard shortcuts on custom partition spoke
* Low memory installations work better using methods where squashfs.img doesn't need to be kept in memory, ie nfs,live image.
* Document changes in Kickstart syntax
* Document new boot options:
- leavebootorder : doesn't change boot order (applicable to POWER, UEFI)
- extlinux: gives extlinux bootloader, assumes you know why you're asking for it.
- memcheck: does an initial memory count to see if there's enough for the chosen method.  this is an approximation; the system might need more depending on circumstances.
- nomemcheck: doesn't check for adequate memory.  Also does not prevent inadequate memory from failing.
* Apparently Anaconda now supports swap on zRAM - ask vpodzime
  zRAM swap for Anaconda: zram can be turned on and off with the inst.zram argument. It will be used
    automatically for systems with <2GB, and not used for systems with >2GB.
    zRAM is a standard block device like tmpfs with one nice difference -- its
    content is compressed. One clever usage of such device is using it as a swap
    device which effectively means one can have compressed RAM. Some experiments
    show that by using zRAM as a swap device in the installation process anaconda
    can install to machines with lower amount of RAM (succeeded with 320 MB) and
    installations on low-RAM systems (< 1 GB) run faster due to usage of zRAM swap
    instead/together with the standard swap we create and use for package
    Specific limits, numbers and way of implementation may be changed in the future,
    but this commit introduces the basic idea and straightforward approach.
* geolocation for initial tz, lang configuration
* use the experimental `dnf` backend instead of yum with the "dnf" command line argument
