Bug Description

In Eoan, link_in_boot is the default, yet curtin still generates kernel-img.conf

With this upload we have changed the default to be link_in_boot = yes, to be the default, without /etc/kernel-img.conf installed anymore.

Curtin should stop installing kernel-img.conf for Eoan and later.

    Setup kernel-img.conf like base-installer/live-installer did.

    LP: #1534162

Should we remove it entirely, or only on target_release E and newer?

Or can we tell whether we should or should not?

Ryan, is this really Incomplete given "Curtin should stop installing kernel-img.conf for Eoan and later" is in the bug description?

no longer affects: curtin
