Bug#986772: [patch] debian-cd: Include eatmydata deb for udeb to use offline

Package: debian-cd
Version: 3.1.33
Tags: patch

A proposal is floating on debian-boot@ to speed up the installation
significatly using the eatmydata-udeb.  This only work with network
installations, but it would be great if it worked with offline
installations too.

See thread starting on
<URL: https://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2021/03/msg00121.html > for
the history so far.

The eatmydatat udeb has been in included on the Debian Edu images for a
while now, the deb is small, and is not activated by default with this
change, so the impact for the default installation is very small.
