Bug Description

[Impact]

Utopic's new gfxboot lost the ability to load data from outside the bootlogo archive, intead requiring all data to be in the archive itself. live-build needs to pack relevant data into the archive to get a working boot screen again.

ubuntu-cdimage's workaround for this should be carried over, meaning live-build would simply generate the bootlogo archive as final step in lb_binary_syslinux.

There is also bug #1387705 which provides an obstacle to testing a possible fix.

[Test Case]

* sudo ubuntu-defaults-image --release utopic --package ubuntu-desktop --flavor ubuntu --components main,restricted,universe,multiverse
* boot created iso

[Regression Potential]

 None comes to mind. Potentially live-build ISOs grow a bit in size since data would be duplicated (
