Bug#1036400: partman-jfs: JFS is on its way out, please remove from the installer

It doesn't seem reasonable to do that weeks away from the release, without
any kind of heads-up. That can be done during the Trixie release cycle,
e.g. in Alpha 1.

Feel free to ping this bug report a few weeks/months into the next release
cycle, so that we have a chance to catch our breath, and to deal with
incoming installation reports.
