I don't get this. The progress that we are trying to track here, I
think, is the extracting and installing process. The download part of
the bootstrap works fine (both installing drivers/kernel and base).
debootstrap gives us nice progress updates while it is using busybox
wget, but it doesn't give nice progress after that.
