Can we drop a force-update and reconfigure-network script in /usr/share/recovery-mode/options/ ?

Upstream bug:


/usr/share/recovery-mode/options is what gets presented to the user when they choose "recovery mode" at the grub menu. Hotline notes there's no way to force an update now.

Can we dump a shell script in /usr/share/recover-mode/options that forces an update and then a "real" reboot? (a kexec reboot occasionally will end up back in recovery mode, which is not what we want)

And when we have our debathena-change-the-ip-address-of-this-cluster-machine pony, that should go in the recovery-mode menu too.

I'll note that naming them "athena-update" and "athena-network" will cause them to appear at the top of the list (it's sorted alphabetically) which is desirable.

So it doesn't explicitly advertise this, but the "dpkg" item in the recovery menu does actually do an apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade

Jon moved the new debathena-cluster into production today, fixing this.
