Bug#593683: linux-2.6 - images does not conflict with pre-policy versions of bootloaders

reopen 593683

Hi guys,

s390-tools, lilo, and elilo are the only bootloaders for which Breaks: were
added in the recent upload.  However, there are reports[1],[2] of serious
upgrade failures resulting from not upgrading grub before trying to upgrade
the kernel; and the grub in lenny definitely does not comply with the new
kernel hooks policy (/etc/kernel/postinst.d/zz-update-grub only exists in
the squeeze versions).  Is this an oversight, or is there some other
explanation for why grub was being left in an inconsistent state for these

(Reopening the bug out of an abundance of caution; if lenny grub really
doesn't need to be added to the Breaks, please close again - but please also
let me know why, so we can write the release notes appropriately.)
