Upgrade from 656 to 703 leaves su unusable when you fallback to 656.

olpc-update from 656 to 703 apparently writes through the hardlink of su to change its ownership, which makes 'su' unusable if/when you use 'alt boot' to fall back to 656.
The "real" solution is actual copy-on-write support in the upgrade system, but a short-term workaround would be to have olpc-update forcibly unlink /bin/su in olpc-update.
