Done in SVN. Of course this increased the size of di-utils by about 4KB
(I made it as small as I could while preserving the existing interface)
and required making di-utils Architecture: any; I hope nobody minds that
too much. I considered making it a separate udeb like di-utils-mapdevfs,
but since it was going to have to be on every initrd anyway there seemed
little point in requiring the consequent busy-work in the build system.
