versioned partitioned upgrading: clean up / config creation

Hi Michael,

Last question for now:

This part of the page seems to suggest that you only create
a /versions/configs entry for systems where an unpartitioned layout is
being used, and no config would be created for a partitioned layout.

Am I reading that right?

I'm having a bit of trouble getting my head around the whole system and
perhaps I'm missing something obvious .. Perhaps you designed it so that
boot configs in /versions/configs are not necessary when we are booting
from a partitioned system, because the "current" and "alt" image hashes
can be deduced from the symlinks on the boot partition at /boot
and /boot/alt ?
