I just uploaded an alpine-edge snapshot v110310.

It contains the new kernel based on and it contains the
updated setup-alpine script which also lets you set up apk repos. (those
were included in previous snapshot which was broken due to busybox

The setup-disk scipt is also updated to handle lvm, btrfs, ext4 etc.
Mount your filesystem on some temp dir, for example /mnt and then run:

  setup-disk /mnt

setup-disk should then set up things properly.

It also has experimental support for create/upgrade CF/usb directly
from http (for tmpfs setups)

To create a new bootable CF:

  setup-bootable http://$mirror/path/to/alpine.iso /dev/sda1

To upgrade a tmpfs system running from sda1:

  setup-bootable http://$mirror/path/to/alpine.iso /media/sda1

Target can be both a mount point (i.e /media/usb) or a device
(i.e /dev/sda1)

It would be nice if you guys could test the above and give feedback.
