This patch correctly uses systemd rather than chkconfig to disable various services in live boot, and drops some very obsolete stuff from fedora-live-base.ks and fedora-live-mini.ks. It also updates the hwclock fixup in live-mini.ks (this was updated for systemd in live-base but not live-mini).
These are all fairly straightforward changes we should take for F16; currently, atd, crond and mdmonitor-takeover all fire on live images.
proposing as final NTH.

updated patch: adds --no-reload
this patch uses --no-reload for the disabling, which is more correct. not having it doesn't cause trouble while livesys is still a sysv service, it seems, but it's best to have it anyway.
Discussed at 2011-09-30 NTH review meeting. Rejected as NTH, it doesn't make sense to touch sensitive live spin bits during a freeze; we should fix this before freeze if we're going to fix it.
I'll try to get this tested this weekend. If things look OK after some simple testing, I'll commit it so we can get it really tested before final freeze.
I didn't get as far as I would have liked, so I am not ready to push this out just yet.
I did get a live image built using this patch with updates-testing. It booted up, but seems to have had a problem with selinux. I had to change to permissive mode to get gdm to work. I didn't get a chance to check the services yet, though I can say that firstboot didn't start.
it does sound like that's not related to the patch, but obviously complicates testing. you could try without updates-testing, i guess.
spin-kickstarts-0.16.2-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
I finally got around to looking at whether what the patch changes looks good and it did. The other issue had already been fixed. So I pushed the change to the repo. Also it is a good time to rebuild the spin-kickstarts package to get an up to date version in before final freeze.
