The latest netboot test I did showed no problems.  I was pointing at
testing, so this problem is fixed (as expected) for affected 64-bit
systems in base-installer 0.084 at least.

The aboot-installer package does not suffer from this bug (at least not
at RC severity) because it uses the base system df, not the busybox df.

Once aboot-installer 0.0.11 makes it into testing, and any other
out-of-date udebs are synced up, I believe alpha will be ready for TC2.
I also want to get d-i using 2.4.26 instead of 2.4.25 on alpha, now that
both are in testing; I'll make the switch tomorrow, and once
aboot-installer is in, start pounding on sarge_d-i.

Does lowmem need to go in at the same time, or just before?
