This should be fixed by the sorting change in partman-base 88:
partman-base (88) unstable; urgency=low
* Sort /dev/hd* and /dev/sd* to the top of the list of devices to open,
along with /dev/ide/* and /dev/scsi/*.
* definitions.sh (humandev): Handle /dev/loop* as well as /dev/loop/*.

There's a TODO note about this in quik-installer. Could you try editing
/var/lib/dpkg/info/quik-installer.postinst before quik-installer runs
and removing this if block to see if everything then runs smoothly?
if [ "$boot_devfs" != "$root_devfs" ]; then
# TODO: Is this still required, now that we put kernel symlinks in
die quik-installer/boot_not_on_root '/boot not on /'
