Re: New debconf template for the linux package

Ben's version has the advantage (seen from my POV) to drop the "your
kernel" which I was about to suggest to change (this is indeed not
"my" kernel but the one running on the machine, which is not
necessarily "mine").

OTOH, the same remark stands for "your" boot loader which I would
replace by "the boot loader".

And, of course, Ben's rewrite puts a big "reviewed by native speaker"
sticker on the template, which is great..:-)
