Bug#853855: di-utils: Kernel boot options containing a dot are not propagated to the installed system

Package: di-utils
Version: 1.117
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i

A kernel boot param like net.ifnames=0 will be skipped when the installer parses the boot option for setting the bootloader.

Found in di-utils: 

                # Skip module-specific variables
                if [ "$varnodot" = "" ]; then

So basically any option containing a dot is not propagated to the
installed system.  This was introduced by
7cf15980d714da8b958a73c93459ee09fdbb9415 ("Skip new module-specific
parameters in user-params.")

I found no documented or obvious reason for this behaviour.
