Bug#743879: debian-cd: Fixes for hppa architecture (patch attached)

Package: debian-cd
Version: 3.1.14
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

debian-cd is currently broken for the hppa/parisc architecture.

The attached patch to the tools/boot/jessie/boot-hppa file fixes three issues:
1. The bootloader on hppa is "palo". Remove one line in the script which tries to move a non-existant "delo.2nd" file.
2. On hppa/sid we now provide a 32bit-UP (vmlinux-*-parisc) and a 64bit-SMP kernel (vmlinux-*-parisc64-smp) only. Adapt the script to take this change into account. Specifically, a vmlinux-*-parisc (non-SMP) kernel doesn't exists any longer and as such it breaks the current debian-cd hppa script.
3. Feature: The hppa bootloader is now able to load gzipped-kernels. So, put gzip'ed kernels on the CD, which saves CD/netinst space.

It would be nice if you could apply this architecture-specifc patch to the next version of debian-cd.
