Bug#655437: installation-reports: kernel image selection is confusing

Package: installation-reports
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i

Dear Maintainer,
When installing on my X220 Tablet, at one point it asks me to choose which
kernel I want to use.  The choices were something like "linux-image-amd64" and
"linux-image-3.1.0-amd64".  There is no information for why you would want to
choose one or the other.  In fact, they both end up installing the same kernel,
so it seems it would be best if this question could be avoided entirely.

Walter Landry
