Bug#263178: Acknowledgement (install deos not modify boot_dev and boot_osflags)

According to my somewhat limited research, an interface to the SRM would
be available if CONFIG_SRM_ENV was set to "y" during kernel build.
Unfortunately, this is not the default :-(

If such a kernel was used during system install, one might set
bootdef_dev to the SRM name of the disk the aboot loader has been
installed to, and boot_osflags to "0" indicating that the default 
setup is to be used.

Of course this should be done before re-booting the system...

It would be very helpful if this could be included into d-i.
