Debian Installer Bookworm RC 4 release

The Debian Installer team[1] is pleased to announce the fourth release
candidate of the installer for Debian 12 "Bookworm".

Improvements in this release

 * cdebconf:
    - Improve banner display when the installer logo's width is smaller
      than the GTK window's width (#745359): instead of scaling, expand
      the banner on the side(s) specified in the theme (#1036321).
 * debian-installer:
    - netboot/x86: fix colors in GRUB submenus (#1036771).
    - netboot/x86: add /splash.png symlink to make GRUB load the splash
      screen (#1036215).
 * grub2:
    - When also installing to the removable media path, include the
      relevant mokmanager binary (#1034409).
    - Allow multiple initrd parameters (#838177, #820838).
 * partman-auto-raid:
    - Add support for LVM-on-LUKS-on-RAID, via a new "crypto-lvm"
      keyword, similar to the existing "lvm" (#1036347).
 * partman-basicfilesystems:
    - Install dosfstools if we have a FAT ESP.
 * rootskel-gtk:
    - Add banner metadata (#745359, #1036321).
    - Align dark banner colors with dark/high-contrast theme.
    - Fix document viewport, avoiding 1-pixel offsets.

Hardware support changes

 * finish-install:
    - Add bochs/cirrus to the initramfs if detected (#1036788).
