Bug#842040: Please add https support

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

The installer currently doesn't support downloading packages from https mirrors, because busybox's wget doesn't support https.

The wget package has been changed to provide a udeb, compiled against the libssl udeb, so that it provides https support.

The change needed in d-i is to add the wget udeb and it's dependencies (libcrypto1.0.2, libssl1.0.2 and libpcre3) to the initrd.

Regarding total size (as this was mentioned when I discussed this in the past), this is the size of the needed udebs:
-rw-r----- 1 marga marga 878072 Sep 26 20:17 libcrypto1.0.2-udeb_1.0.2j-1_amd64.udeb
-rw-r----- 1 marga marga 153852 Aug 19 12:59 libpcre3-udeb_8.39-2_amd64.udeb
-rw-r----- 1 marga marga 141318 Sep 26 20:17 libssl1.0.2-udeb_1.0.2j-1_amd64.udeb
-rw-r----- 1 marga marga 147960 Sep 26 15:19 wget-udeb_1.18-4_amd64.udeb

And this is the size difference of the old initrd and the new one:
-rw-r----- 1 marga eng 22580707 Oct 25 02:07 initrd.gz
-rw-r----- 1 marga eng 23381570 Oct 25 15:11 newinitrd.gz

So, approximately 780k extra for the initrd image (3.5% increase)
