Bug#281394: env2debconf doesn't work on s390

Apparently the s390 kernel does not parse the kernel command line for
environment variables. Here I'm in hercules and I've put "foo=bar" in
parmfile.debian, which adds it to the kernel command line

And coming back from the Linux/390 list, something that might help:

Anyone here know anything about why the kernel doesn't set environment
variables from the command line?

Begin forwarded message:

Command line environment variables are only passed to the init process
(PPID=0). It should work if you retry the test using the following
command line:

ro foo=bar init=/bin/bash
