Bug#985463: debian-installer: kernel complains about /boot partition in LVM install (ext2 filesystem being mounted at /boot supports timestamps until 2038)

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainers,

I did a test installation using debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso from 2021-03-15 (Debian bullseye/11), chose the LVM option,
and noticed that once the system is installed and boots, the kernel complains with this message:

  ext2 filesystem being mounted at /boot supports timestamps until 2038 (0x7fffffff)

This is not fatal, but is ugly and most people would prefer a system without this message.

The problem comes from the fact that the boot partition is created as ext2 with 128 bytes inodes.

One fix would be to create the /boot filesystem as ext4 with 256 bytes inodes.

The same problem exists in the Debian buster installer and will show up when buster systems are upgraded to a 5.10 kernel.

Thanks for your work!
