Bug#238963: libc6: remove /etc/default/{devpts,tmpfs} etc

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.2.ds1-11
Severity: critical

The package initscript_2.85-11 now does all the work of mounting
devpts, sysfs, procfs, usbdevfs in /etc/rcS.d/S02mountvirtfs
as was discussed previously.

Because of that it includes /etc/default/devpts and /etc/default/tmpfs
which are also in the libc6 package. initscript Replaces: libc6
and libc6.1.

But that makes 2.3.2.ds1-11 uninstallable if initscripts was
installed first, hence the severity of this bugreport.

So, please remove /etc/default/devpts, /etc/default/tmpfs and
/etc/init.d/mountkernfs from the libc6 package.

Because they are conffiles, they will remain on the system even if
removed from the package - so even if libc6 is upgraded first and
initscripts later, that will cause no problems.

I think initscripts should rm -f /etc/init.d/mountkernfs and
/etc/init.d/devpts.sh in its postinst because it has proper
replacements for that. Do you agree ?
