Bug#301367: install: kernel not copied if target disk isn't /dev/hd[a-c]
reassign 301367 makedev

This seems to be a makedev package bug, similar to what was reported in
#300913. I haven't carefully checked this, though...just noticed that
MAKEDEV seems to stop at hdh
So, Bdale, this probably needs the same decision on your side : either
have MAKEDEV create these devices.....or reassign the bug to d-i so
that we add a hack as Joey suggested in #300913.
