Currently when the appliance is booted we see warning messages like
[/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/systemd.conf:26] Failed to replace specifiers: /run/log/journal/%m
[/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/systemd.conf:28] Failed to replace specifiers: /run/log/journal/%m
[/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/systemd.conf:29] Failed to replace specifiers: /run/log/journal/%m
They are apparently harmless, but are caused because /etc/machine-id
does not exist inside the appliance, and so %m cannot be substituted
The solution to this is to provide /etc/machine-id. However this is
not so simple: either we could get supermin to generate this,
requiring an ugly systemd-specific hack to supermin, or we could
generate it in the /init script, which just slows the init script down
for no real reason.
Since the content of /etc/machine-id doesn't really matter for a
throwaway appliance so long as it has the right format, this commit
copies the host file into the appliance.
