11/01/2020: This week in KISS (#6)

The focus this week was on increasing the portability of the boot scripts. This involved adding new "generic" hooks and removing any non-portable flags.

The boot scripts now include a pure shell implementation of killall5 as well. This maintains the functionality while keeping it 100% portable across coreutils.

The package manager also saw a move from busybox wget to curl for downloading sources. This satisfies the download tool requirement for coreutils which don't provide wget and curl was already in core (for git).

Thanks to everyone using and contributing to KISS.
