Problem description

This patch fixes the behavior of YaST installation in the way that the failed or aborted installation is reported only in case of really failed or aborted installation. Not in in case of restarted YaST or system because of performed YaST Online Update that requested it. This patch needs to restart YaST.
This patch also starts a SuSEfirewall2_setup after system is rebooted during a second stage installation and firewall service is enabled in the system init scripts. YaST starts network and firewall services as soon as possible if needed.
This patch also fixes the export of Add-On configurations in the clone-system feature at the end of the installation.
