Bug Description

Fedora Atomic 21 requires the following command line to boot properly:

pxe_append_params = nofb nomodeset vga=normal console=tty1 no_timer_check rd.lvm.lv=atomicos/root root=/dev/mapper/atomicos-root ostree=/ostree/boot.0/fedora-atomic/a002a2c2e44240db614e09e82c7822322253bfcaad0226f3ff9befb9f96d315f/0

Overridding this globally is not ideal since other images may have different roots and may not want the ostree parameter. If root is specified in the override, it should replace the root in the pxe template or just override the template parameters all-together. This may require changing how blkid is used to determine the root UUID of the filesystem as well during the property override case.
