Hmm. At the moment, no.

If we can find a way of doing this in a generic manner, so
that I do not have to insert and update subarch specific code into
the postinst, I'm game. I definitely do not want to have arch
specific code all over.
For example, if the boot loader is 'guess', I can invoke
/sbin/guess-loader to determine the boot loader. For official kernel
images, I can look to an env var or something to set the bootloader
to guess -- and this method shall be available to all architectures
to use, if they so desire.
