[Systems] Upgrading bender

I upgraded to F16 and it was booting fine into it. Then I merged
.rpmnew, added the kernel options to convert to unified /usr
(necessary to be able to upgrade to F17), and the machine didn't come
back after reboot.

I suspect it's a problem with the fs conversion, so if you replace at
the grub prompt "rw rd.info rd.convertfs enforcing=0" with "ro", I
hope it would boot.
