Support [virtual] dvd device in add system image
Open, Requires assessmentPublicFEATURE REQUEST

Description

It would be nice to be able to add system image from a dvd device instead of an iso file.

eg. add system image /dev/sr0

Useful for testing upgrades on an offline vm before swapping it in. Right now I just dd if=/dev/sr0 of=/tmp/v.iso, but having the install script use the device directly would be useful on low ram systems.
