Bug#879147: debian-ports support when installing the kernel and extra packages

Package: base-installer
Version: 1.171
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
X-Debbugs-CC: "Helge Deller" <deller@gmx.de>, "John Paul Adrian Glaubitz" <glaubitz@physik.fu-berlin.de>, "James Clarke" <jrtc27@debian.org>

Dear Maintainer,

bootstrap-base installs a kernel and some extra packages as its last
steps ('install_kernel' and 'install_extra').

The patch below enables the use of the 'unreleased' distribution on
non released architectures during these steps. (A file 'port_architecture'
should be created previously by another package, e.g. 
choose-mirror-bin. See #879130)
