Bug#580714: debian-installer: build installer image for Buffalo Linkstation Pro/Live


First of all, thanks for the work on this - it's been on my TODO list
for about 2 years now :o(

Old linkstation stock-firmware versions won't boot at all with this
parameter removed - they won't boot the standard Buffalo Linux stuff
thereafter either....

Perhaps it's good enough to just complain about these, or instruct the
user to use a certain minimum version.  As most people don't have serial
consoles, some semi-official Debian firmware which does netconsole (and
thus proper netboot etc. etc.) would probably be a big win, but that can
come later.
