# grub and other bootloaders that read the filesystem do not support /boot

Obviously, this is quite machine-specific. Many ARM machines boot
directly from flash and don't have this limitation.
check.d/no_btrfs_boot should handle this properly...
flash-kernel/debian/flash-kernel-installer.postinst contains info for
some ARM machines whether they boot from flash or disk; maybe this
should be moved and generalized somewhere.
