Bug#288897: elilo-installer: needs to remove 'do_bootloader = no' entry from kernel-img.conf

Package: elilo-installer
Version: 1.2
Severity: grave

base-installer adds 'do_bootloader = no' to /etc/kernel-img.conf.  With this
setting, kernel-image packages will no longer prompt the user to run ELILO
in their post-install.  This means users will see no indication that the
kernel they just installed (which may contain a critical security fix, for
example) is not configured as the default kernel for the next boot.

lilo-installer sets the precedent of removing this setting in its postinst.
elilo-installer should probably do the same; although it seems to me that
base-installer has chosen the wrong default of disabling bootloader execution.
