Bug Description

Binary package hint: migration-assistant

migration-assistant should filter partitions marked with reuse in their partman directory from the list it gets from os-prober, otherwise it will try to use the partition being written to by the installer when that option is selected.

I came up with the following but then realized the premise is incorrect. The reuse option does not clear /home, so in theory it would work fine. However, it shouldn't be trying to import from the same location the installation is being written to.
