As discussed on IRC, those "image-root" derivations do exercise store
deduplication a lot, are could participate to the observed database

Turns out I used those derivations as "staging" directories that are
passed to GNU Xorriso when producing ISO images and "mke2fs" and
"mkdosfs" when producing raw disk-images. Using the store was also
convenient to ensure root ownership of the image files.

With 1cb9effc3e875ec7bae31bb06069d16ac89f7e1d and
7f75a7ec08975eb6d6e01db61bd6b91f447f655e, I remove those "image-root"
derivations, and proceed to image creation in a single derivation.

The later commit is a bit more tricky because "mke2fs" is not able to
override file permissions. I used "fakeroot" to make sure that the raw
disk-image files are owned by "root" and not "guixbuilder".

Hoping it will help,
