Bug Description

on the imx51 babbage board we re-use the installation media as boot media for the target system after install.
on shutdown a message telling the user to remove the CD before hitting enter is displayed. this message should be omitted on such installs so the user doesnt accidentially remove the bootdevice.

Release notes text added:

== Suggests removing boot medium after installing on ARM-based Babbage boards ==

On the ARM-based Babbage board, the installation medium (an SD card) is reused as the boot medium after installation. When restarting the system at the end of installation, you will be prompted to remove the installation medium. This message is incorrect, and you should leave the SD card in place in order to be able to start the installed system. (Bug:364273)

  * Don't prompt to eject the SD card on Babbage boards, since for now it's
    reused as a quasi-boot-floppy (LP: #364273).

  [ James Westby ]
  * scripts/casper-bottom/44pk_allow_ubuntu: update to work for polkit-1
    as well. Allow the live cd user to perform any action when at the
    active console. (LP: #447141)
