had things in different subdirs.

I'd be in favor of removing the kernel versions in names. Main issue is to 
avoid breaking debian-cd (hppa/sparc).

Maybe if we do this change we could at the same time:
- standardize the directory layout for images across arches
- remove remaining 2.6 subdirs (or make them standard for all images)
- add the arch by default in the image path for daily builds (i.e.
  /d-i/images/<arch>/...) so that one person can safely build multiple
