If I understood the comments in base-installer/kernel/README correct,
only the architectures with shell scripts that use KERNEL_ABI have this
problem? If this is true, we only have it on hppa and s390, and in this
case, I think we should be able to fix that pretty fast.

That would allow us to update the kernel debs without breaking any
installer, if we still provide all udebs.
