change the release directory structure. This is in response to #58655, and
problems with kernel version related image naming problems.

There are two changes. The first is to change all disks-{1.20,1.44,2.88}

The second is to use kernel versions in the path, instead of tagging them to
the end of image names. Thus, we will have paths like this:

I've filed a release-critical bug against debian-cd as it will be affect by
these changes. If you know of other packages that may be affected, please
change/file RC bugs against them.

I've crossposted this to all port-related mailing lists because I want to
make sure these changes are ok with all non-i386 architectures (what we've
tested these on so far). In particular, this needs to deal with subarchs as
