When running the CK kernel archiso fails to successfully build the releng profile. Baseline builds without issue on CK or Arch. releng successfully builds on the Arch kernel.

Additional info:
* 42-1
* Error message: mount: work/efiboot: mount failed: Operation not permitted.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install the CK kernel
2. During the install step select the gcc native option, turn on P6_NOPs, and switch initramfs compression to LZ4. (this step might not matter at all)
3. Boot up the CK kernel, and proceed with the releng install steps without making any edits.
4. Build will fail when work/efiboot cannot be mounted.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  The error is that your custom kernel is unable to run the "mount" command. Not an archiso issue.

Can you replicate the issue manually using the commands to lines 183?
Does dmesg have any additional information on the mount failure?
Initially this looks like an issue with the custom kernel rather than archiso.

dmesg does not have anything listed in it.

sudo mount /home/user/isos/archlive/work/iso/EFI/archiso/efiboot.img /home/user/isos/archlive/work/efiboot

replicates the issue. What could the issue possibly be? The CK kernel is largely based off of the Arch kernel. I'll let graysky know about this.
