It is fixed, and we should stop playing around with tags just because
Bastian is confusing two different bugs.

GRUB used to rely on debian-installer to set postinst_hook for it, and
the kernel will still honour that.  But on some systems where users have
switched from LILO to GRUB while using lenny, the user did not know they
should set this.  Since we try to maintain the same kernel ABI during a
stable release, there was never any *need* to update the GRUB menu until
they upgraded from 2.6.26-2-flavour to 2.6.32-5-flavour.  But the
configuration was broken all along, and this problem is independent of
the bug that Bastian originally reported.

Bastian, if you still think the kernel should somehow work around this
problem, please make a new report.  But it should be severity important
or lower, because a missing menu entry is in not grave!
