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

I think that the installer uses ext2 for /boot because some boot
loaders only support(ed) ext2 and not its successor filesystem formats.
But I think that's an historical problem for most release
If that is true, then an even simpler solution would be to get rid of the separate /boot partition and have the /boot directory in the root filesystem.
Thanks for looking at this bug !
