Package: base-installer
Version: 1.66
Tags: patch

When trying to install usplash before the kernel, to avoid running
update-initramfs more than once, I preseeded the package in the
base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages template, expecting this to
solve the issue.  It had no effect.

I discovered I had to use the
base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages-2.6 template instead.  I
expected base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages template to be
used for all kernels, whlie
base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages-2.6 used only for 2.6
kenrels, while in reallity, the values in
base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages are never used as the
db_get for base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages-2.6 will always

I suggest rewriting the code to always use the content in
base-installer/kernel/linux/extra-packages, and use the kernel
specific version when the kernel version matches the variable.  Here
is a patch to implement it.
