Bug#304358: lilo-installer: should not try to make MD device active

Package: lilo-installer
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i patch

  When user selects to install lilo on MD device lilo-installer tries to
make it active. It should not do this. Attached patch fixes this bug and
also makes it possible to enter MD device manually.
