Bug#48872: Unnecessary packages in basedisks

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.1
Severity: normal

	The basedisk image is already bloated enough at ~15MB. I  believe that
the follwing 2 packages should be removed from scripts/basedisks/PACKAGES_all


	Nothing in the base disks depends on them (at least on my i386 system
- dunno about other archs) therefore they can safely be removed.
