Umm, I just made this change to reflect what the over rides
file says. The prerm script of the kernel-image package will not
allow a running image to be removed, and if the image being removed
is not the same image that is currently running, then they must have
another image [viz, the one that is running].
I, too, felt uneasy when this was first decided, but have
since convinced myself that indeed, this would work, and allow people
to switch to custom kernels easily (without troubling the new comers)
Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging.
