I've committed the debian-cd changes with a few very minor (style)
corrections. The implementation is IMO quite nice and clean.
The size increase from enabling the Xen variant for the m-a netinst is
55MB (main changes are ~20MB from the extra bigmem kernel image and ~30MB
from added D-I kernels and initrds). This is a fairly big increase, but
the multi-arch netinst can handle it.
Ian: feel free to commit the changes for D-I (after the corrections) and
when that's done I'll enable the Xen variant for the CD builds.
