Apparently the s390 kernel does not parse the kernel command line for
environment variables. Here I'm in hercules and I've put "foo=3Dbar" in
parmfile.debian, which adds it to the kernel command line:

Maybe this is really a kernel bug, I don't know. Should check with the kern=
el
guys and if there's a reason it cannot set env variables, one fix might
be to parse /proc/cmdline instead of using the environment.

Until this gets fixed, fully automatic, preseeded installs arn't possible
on s390.

Waldi pointed out that di-utils-shell clears the environment. I must
have messed up before, my debconf variable settings are getting through
now.

We still need preseeding support for s390, but that is a different bug..
