Is it needed for anything else?  Can partitioner depend on arch-detect
being run first?  Can you depend on the user not having manually
unloaded the module from the second console after arch-detect runs ;P,
or will arch-detect be able to pass this information to partitioner in
some other way?

In any case, yes, the srm_env module needs to be available in the d-i
kernels in order to pick the correct partition type for the system.
