Perform checkouts before actual upgrade

Please consider to move or duplicate some of the checks before actual upgrade action. For example - cfgcheck can be initiated before upgrade action, this will eliminate situation where e.g. error in netmap.cfg/userfile.cfg causes rollback action after unsuccessful upgrade attempt that takes time, requires downtime and produces leftovers in recovery area.

How will this idea be used?

This will speed up upgrade process - users will get information about failed upgrade sooner (lower downtime) and upgrade attempt will not produce leftovers (a copy of installation files for recovery purpose) in "restore" directory.
