Update imageloader.conf to justify startup behavior

The general rule is to avoid blocking UI startup as much as possible,
except for stuff that is needed to bring up the UI. The latter applies
in this case, so reorganize comments a bit to justify this.

This aims to provide a generic utility to verify and load (mount) signed disk images through DBUS IPC.


  • imageloader

imageloader handles the mounting of disk images. imageloader should be executed via the imageloader_wrapper script, which ensures that imageloader's storage exists and is owned by imageloaderd user. When imageloader is not running, DBus will automatically invoke it. After 20 seconds of inactivity, the service exits.
