If we really need it for some support I'm happy to put those neccessary
files back. The best way for this would be an upload of a package
(or multiple) including a byhand component for the part to be put into
tools/. Like, for the unzip stuff one of unzip, the gzip part via gzip,
etc. as had been done with loadlin in the past.

tools/ is currently an empty dir (so debian-cd wont fail).
