Re: Bug#699704: partman: Please don't load_extra on non-Linux

Control: tags -1 + patch

Attached is the patch I'd like to go with, but I have *not* tested it
yet in its current form...

`archdetect` is already available as a dependency of partman-base.  It
can't detect GNU/Hurd yet, but that's not a release arch yet either.

I've written the test to be 'fail-safe' and abort the installation of
these packages *only* if detecting GNU/kFreeBSD or GNU/Hurd;  if unsure
it will proceed as before.
