I debated this one - just because it was part of the upstream commit
doesn't automatically make it suitable for inclusion in stable.
However, having checked that it does indeed appear to be unused, I'm not
going to insist that it not be included.

I wouldn't expect this to be required. With the widespread use of
LVM-based chroots, the chances of tip22 already being in the chroot used
for the mips d-i build are quite low, so I'd suggest that we work on the
assumption that the correct version will be used - if there turns out to
be an issue for some reason, we can always binNMU d-i on mips and tell
wanna-build to ensure that the new tip22 is used for the build.

Thanks; please go ahead.
