Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

The 8021q kernel module (and its dependecies slp and garp) are not included in any of the installer media (whereas it's available in the -generic kernels). Having them included in the init ramdisk so that network installation can use vlan is also useful.

Subject: [PATCH] Add vlan (8021.Q) module package for d-i.

The 8021q kernel module (and its dependencies slp and garp) are not
included in any of the installer medias. Adding them would enable vlan
tagging to be used during installation.

Given that the kernel module's already been added and that this is an optional menu item in d-i (not to mention that it's already been made available in non-netboot installations), I don't think the rest of this really needs an FFE; if it goes wrong then we just ignore it! I've committed the addition to netboot images.
