Bug#513283: debian-installer: "keymap select" is ignored when loading the preseeding file from kernel parameters

Quoting Lasse Aagren (aagren@dtic.dk):

The installer does not provide all keymaps provided by
console-data. Choices were made (such as using dk-latin1 as "Danish")
due to size constraints (and to avoid confusing newcomers).

This is one of the reasons which motivated the dk-latin1->dk links
removal in the installer....because when choosing "dk", one was indeed
choosing "dk-latin1" while the real "dk" keymap is slightly different.
