Firefly: failsafe image for illumos-based distros

If somebody is looking for illumos-based filesafe image, I've created small iso (usb image is available also) at sourceforge. This image provides the same method as old Solaris iso's: looks for bootable root pool, imports it to /a and mounts bootfs:

I hope someone will find this image useful for recovery purposes on any illumos-based distributions.

I've created a fairly simple netboot recipe for Firefly using iPXE here:

Hope it might be useful for others.
