Bug Description

Subject says it all. We need d-i to support installing the lts-vivid kernel, as we did with the lts backports in precise.

Test-case would be to try the vivid-* installers to make sure they install the right kernel (and at all!), and to test the non-vivid variants to make sure they didn't regress in installing the proper kernels.

debian-installer (20101020ubuntu318.18) trusty; urgency=medium

  * Switch to '---' as option separator for all kernels (LP: #1427252)
  * Add lts-vivid variants for all targets except for e500, for which
    support was dropped in the utopic/lts-utopic kernel (LP: #1459779)
  * Conditionally use apm-mustang.dtb from new location (LP: #1408004)
