  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Use and depend on the Ubuntu keyring.
    - Enable the restricted component by default, unless
      apt-setup/restricted is preseeded to false.
    - Set up the default sources.list to look in -updates and -security (the
      latter from apt-setup/security_host and apt-setup/security_path) as
      well as the unadorned suite; also -proposed if apt-setup/proposed is
      true.
    - Use Ubuntu kernel image names.
    - Allow preseeding base-installer/kernel/override-image to force a given
      kernel to be used.
    - Install busybox-initramfs rather than busybox.
    - Revert Joey's patch to call base-installer.d hooks after running
      debootstrap, which broke console-setup's expectation of being able to
      insert its configuration file into /target before console-setup is
      installed by debootstrap.
    - Add armhf/keystone, armhf/omap, and armhf/omap4 subarchitectures.
    - Install kernel headers to match the kernel. This may be overridden by
      setting base-installer/kernel/headers to false.
    - Add base-installer/kernel/backports-modules template, which may be
      preseeded to install selected linux-backports-modules-* packages.
    - Move some kernel installation support code from bootstrap-base to
      base-installer, and allow live-installer to override the title
      template used by that.
    - Add powerpc/e500 and powerpc/e500mc subarchitectures.
    - Add overlay archive support.
  * Fix up architecture tests to still pass with less delta from Debian.

    debian-installer/allow_unauthenticated_ssl=true, set https_proxy if
    necessary, and copy any certificates that exist in d-i into the target
    system (LP: #1135163).
