Bug#282677: kbd-chooser: Defaults to "none" for keymap when debconf priority is critical and language has no default keymap

Package: kbd-chooser
Severity: important

I use the "important" tag here for enhancing that this bug should be worth
being fixed before the release.

When a given language has no default keymap set in console-data for a given
arch/keyboard type and the debconf priority is set to critical, then the
value of console-keymap-xx/keymap is set to "none" and kbd-chooser then
tries loading the "none" keymap, which fails.

This bug can be reproduced for instance by booting d-i with:

linux DEBCONF_PRIORITY=critical languagechooser/language-name=Arabic

This bug is *not* related to recent changes in console-data and happens with
D-I RC2 (which has console-keymaps-* from testing).
