Two questions:

Stuff like cmos.layout could arguably go into fallback/ or normal/. 

What's the right way to solve this with cbfs-files-y?

If it stays in /, what happens if an image is updated with a newer
version of cmos.layout (say, no old options move/remove so it's safe in
that regard). Will the file be ignored? Or Overwritten? Do we produce a
proper warning for that?
