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:

I've forwarded this to the Marist Linux/390 list, which the IBM S/390 kernel developers read.

I'm guessing that this was also the reason that when I tried preseed/url=http://server.sinenomine.net/debian on Friday, it didn't actually work, and I still had to manually choose my mirror? I had assumed it was something I was doing wrong with how preseeding needed to work.

*Is* the correct behavior that, once I've entered my network information, the preseeding should take over and use the mirror I specified?
