Bug#465122: dd uses a lot of memory

Package: flash-kernel
Version: 1.6
Severity: normal

Since dd is run with ibs= the full image size, quite a lot of ram is
needed to run flash-kernel. I just had it die when running it from
within d-i without swap mounted. I think that using a smaller input
buffer size would be a generally good idea, it might even make
flash-kernel perform better on systems with swap, since they won't need
to swap out 3.4 mb of stuff.
