Bug#772044: debian-installer: jessie beta2 ignores preseed url= boot parameter

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20141002
Severity: important
Tags: d-i

Hi D-I team,

I have been attempting to preseed a jessie install (in virtualbox, using
packer) and have found the beta 2 release resistant to this. Following
the documentation[1] I am providing the following boot parameters:

auto url=http://<ip>:<port>/jessie_amd64.cfg

As far as I can tell d-i is silently ignoring the url= parameter, though
it does seem to be respecting 'auto' as it does auto-configure
networking before asking any questions. I can see from my web server's
logs that no request is made to retrieve the preseed file, and I get no
error or warning if I pass a url that should 404.

Providing identical boot parameters command works without issue in both
wheezy and jessie beta 1, and I cannot find any evidence that this
parameter should have changed between beta 1 and 2.
