New debconf template for the linux package


I intend to add a new debconf template in the linux package, that will
appear on mips/mipsel systems. As English is a foreign language for me
I appreciate if some people can review it. Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

  It is highly recommended to abort the kernel removal unless you are
  prepared to fix the system after removal.
+Template: linux-image-@abiname@@localversion@/postinst/mips-initrd-@abiname@@localversion@
+Type: note
+_Description: Boot loader configuration must be updated
+ Historically MIPS kernels were compiled so that they can boot without
+ initrd (i.e. with disk and filesystem drivers built-in), as some bootloaders
+ did not support booting with an initrd. This isn't the case anymore, so this
+ image now uses initrd.
+ .
+ Your current kernel has been booted without initrd. Please make sure to
+ configure your bootloader to use initrd, otherwise there is a danger that
+ the system will fail to boot. Your system might still be able to boot
+ without initrd, but this likely won't be the case for the next versions
+ of this package.
