Bug#457403: debian-installer: Serial console parameters are not used when generating grub config

reassign 457403 grub-installer
forcemerge 445584 457403

Quoting Chris Adams (cadams@salk.edu):
> Package: debian-installer
> Version: 20070308etch1
> Severity: important
> Our cluster nodes PXE boot with the following parameters:
> 	append initrd=debian/etch/DI/amd64/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=18000 root=/dev/rd/0 devfs=mount,dall rw console=ttyS0,57600n8 auto url= DEBIAN_FRONTEND=text locale=en_US priority=critical interface=auto netcfg/dhcp_timeout=60
> The serial console works for the initial install but the generated
> /boot/grub/menu.lst won't have a console line. Adding the older sarge-style d-i
> boot parameters doesn't help, either:

> I've kludged around this in our preseed/late-command script:
> chroot /target sed -i 's/kopt=.*$/& console=ttyS0,57600n8/g' /boot/grub/menu.lst
> Although the effects are similar this doesn't appear to be related to #416310

This is indeed bug #445854....

It probably just needs someone to care enough and add the needed code
to grub-installer to have it use the options passed to the d-i kernel
and add them to the relevant menu.lst entries on the installed system.
