Bug#401264: partman-auto-lvm: [powerpc, prep] On PReP systems, no separate /boot is needed, since we have the prep partition

Package: partman-auto-lvm
Version: 18
Severity: normal

Hello, ...

I am doing a prep install on my motorola powerstack II, and found that chosing
a LVM automated setup, the recipes automatically creates a separate /boot

On PReP system, the kernel with builtin initrd and bootwrapper is put inside
the PReP partition, so there is no need for a separate /boot outside the LVM.
This should be valid for other root on RAID and LVM+CRYPTO recipes.

This may also be true on CHRP systems who use the zImage wrapper and a PReP
partition, and not yaboot, but we use yaboot by default on those, and this
would cause a time-travel loop, since the choice of bootloader is done after
the partitioning step.
