README.txt: document the new options in liveslak.
* added '-r' parameter to refresh an existing USB Live stick with data from a new Live ISO. * boot: added 'nop=wipe' parameter which will cause all persistent data (in the persistence directory or a persistent data container) to be erased. This allows you to repair a case of corrupted persistent data which can occur after you modified files that are part of a squashfs module. Note that this boot option will leave an encrypted /home un-touched!
