I just did not thought of looking at rootskel bug list.

The patch is against busybox-udeb.  From the tests I have made using
qemu for armel/versatile this patch won't be enough, as I now get:
  cttyhack: can't open '/dev/ttyAMA0': No such file or directory

And indeed, there is no such file as /dev/ttyAMA0 when cttyhack is run.

Good news is that after creating /dev/ttyAMA0 manually in a BOOT_DEBUG
shell, everything goes fine.

Bad news is that we probably have to modify
/lib/debian-installer/init-udev-devices to create a file for every misc.
serial line device.

If that sounds like a good plan to solve this issue, feel free to block
#484366 by #493865.
