Bug#746966: debian-live: HiDPI support needed for debian-installer

Package: debian-live

After booting the netinst iso, the text of the Debian installer is
very small on HiDPI displays, for many users it will be  unreadable.
This problem is going to get worse as higher resolution 4k laptops
begin to appear.

I am filing this against debian-live as it seems that early in the
boot process would be the right place to reconfigure the console with
larger fonts (similar to FONTSIZE in /etc/default/console-setup )
rather than in debian-installer itself, which afaik does not
manipulate font sizes.
