I've built a test image here including -p-u and I am happy with it:
SHA-256: dae659788f2fd7d92e59a0a62f3144887d7a44f308703a93a46d3b7bca10ab2e
I'd encourage anyone to test that if they can.

I think we can begin the release process now:

debian-installer is uplodaed, but must be installed, which may be
automatic I'm not sure:

Then jessie-kfreebsd-p-u must be copied into jessie-kfreebsd.  This is
probably a good time because the official suites are about to freeze p-u
for a point release next weekend.

debian-cd tools need some symlinks to alias jessie-kfreebsd to jessie,
and another small bugfix may be needed.

If the jessie-kfreebsd suite is ready in time, maybe the kfreebsd CD
images could be built along with the 8.4 point release.  I'll start to
ping the relevant teams now.
