debian-installer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


- no grub.efi generated by d-i on arm64, and arm64 server have been switching to uefi/grub already,
so arm64 server can't be installed via trusty d-i

[Test Case]

- no grub.efi generated from the following link:

[Regression Potential]

- we can only generate grub.efi & netboot.tar.gz for netboot, so all files should be added-only,
no potential regression

[Other Info]

Given netboot.tar.gz have been genereated on Wily & Xenial, this patch also takes this way and
generate netboot.tar.gz too.
