fyi: extlinux in the next upload (in two days when the previous one has
migrated) will fully complains to the policy.

any previous versions since last november did comply already, except
that the extlinux hook was named 'extlinux' instead of 'zz-extlinux'
(which in case of extlinux is entirely cosmetic, it doesn't make a
difference for extlinux if it's run first or last).
