parentbootconfig: Print array as multiple commands for legacy command line (diff)
bootconfig: Prohibit re-defining value on same key
Currently, bootconfig adds a new value on the existing key to the tail of an array. But this looks a bit confusing because an admin can easily rewrite the original value in the same config file. This rejects the following value re-definition. key = value1 ... key = value2 You should rewrite value1 to value2 in this case.
