Bug Description

This code in update-lessdisks-kernels:

# mkelf-linux is the newer standard
if [ -n "$(which mkelf-linux)" ]; then
  mknbi_command=mkelf-linux
elif [ -n "$(which mknbi-linux)" ]; then
  mknbi_command=mknbi-linux
else
  echo "couldn't find mknbi-linux or mkelf-linux... exiting..."
  exit 1
fi

If mkelf-linux is installed, it always uses it instead of mknbi-linux. In the ubuntu package, this is always true. However, due to the fact that I have old etherboot ROMs and can't easily re-burn them, I _need_ to use mknbi-linux. Thus I had to change this program to use mknbi-linux always; but it would be better to have an option for this. Or better, just call "mknbi" and let the command-line options determine the format.
