Uploaded boot-floppies 2.2.6 (source all) to master

This release is mostly bugfixes relative to 2.2.5.  It hasn't been
heavily tested yet, so that's why I'm uploading it.

Debuggers should be using the 'debug' bootarg when booting.  Other
interesting bootargs are 'verbose' (for instance, if you don't want to
retain 2.0 compat in your e2fs filesystems) and 'quiet' (tries to
inhibit prompts whenever possible).

Be sure to file bugs against the right package, such as base-config,
modconf, kernel-image-2.2.14 or kernel-image-2.2.14-compact, etc.

We believe there are still problems with networking install,
networking configuration, PCMCIA, and DHCP.  In my brief tests, DHCP
config seems utterly broken.  Hopefully that will be fixed and we'll
have 2.2.7 soon.

Documentation is probably still out of date; dbootstrap messages need
to be gutted -- we could really use some help there...

We have a provisional solution to the mbr issue, which inhibts the
prompting entirely unless there's an error.  I'm not sure that's the
right solution.

Comments and followup to debian-boot@lists.debian.org please.

 boot-floppies (2.2.6) frozen unstable; urgency=low
   * control: depend on python-xml (closes: Bug#56368), debhelper
   * scripts/rootdisk/strip_executables.sh renamed from strip_executables,
     some fixes
   * documentation: README-compact added, other updates
   * dbootstrap: mke2fs makes 2.0 kernel compatable filesystems by default
     -- this option can be changed when if using the 'verbose' flag; add a
     'flavor=' bootarg flag handling, and fix the rescue.bin and
     drivers.tgz setting function to use this if set; improve a few
     messages but many more still need more improvement; INFOMSG, ERRMSG,
     and DEBUGMSG were fixed so they actually work; improve the lilo
     configuration; remove dbootstrap's dependancies on busybox
     (closes: Bug#27224, Bug#39617, Bug#31559, Bug#41901); prompt prior to
     reboot if we just partitioned a mounted disk (closes: Bug#56270);
     net-fetch flavors should work now (closes: Bug#56473); install-mbr
     invoked with args to only prompt if there's an error (closes: Bug#56821)
   * fixes in modconf and base-config improve many problems
   * i18n: Japanese, Hungarian and Russian updates
   * busybox: updates, fixes, significantly, the segfaulting ping error,
     umount, init, and syslog problems (closes: Bug#56603, Bug#56478)
   * documentation: some updates -- documentation not completely Potato
     updated, however
   * alpha: porting updates, esp. changes to support Milo booting, fix
     library reduction on alpha (note that only alpha and i386 use library
     reduction, which is a shame)
   * rescue (i386): fix f6.txt and f7.txt issues, include f8.txt; set
     flavor properly, which fixes the 'compact' handling
   * base: remove gconv-modules
   * remove some derived files from CVS which shouldn't have been there
   * debian/rules: run 'make check' first
   * mirror_base.sh: get PCMCIA packages
