Bug#599417: partman-btrfs: indiscriminately returns an error when there is no separate /boot partition

check.d/no_btrfs_boot says:
# grub and other bootloaders that read the filesystem do not support /boot
# on btrfs. (lilo should work). Detect and warn.

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.
