Package: mkvmlinuz
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

As said, mkvmlinuz should set the vmlinuz symlink, depending on the value of
/etc/kernel-img.conf link_in_boot value. This is important for d-i bootloader
installation and such. And also better for the user.

I have no patch, but i suggest a reading of the /etc/kernel-img.conf
link_in_boot value, and depending on its result set the /boot/vmlinuz or
/vmlinuz symlink. I have the feeling that it would take you less time to
implement it directly, than to apply a patch from me. 

That said, tell me if you want a patch.

 mkvmlinuz  - create a kernel to boot a PowerPC machine from Open Firmware
Closes: 260219 374185
 mkvmlinuz (23) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fallback arch/powerpc/boot object files for chrp kernels without mkvmlinuz
     support. This uses the 2.6.16+ code, but should work with any 2.6 kernel.
   * Now supports the creation of a /boot/vmlinuz symlink to the last created
     vmlinuz kernel. (Closes: #260219)
   * Now uses /bin/bash as interpeter, as we use bashisms. (Closes: #374185)
