debian/cron.daily: fix small typo in shell variable usage (LP: #148456).

6. By Daniel Hahler

debian/cron.daily: Use ionice. It looks for settings from
/etc/updatedb.conf and uses "best effort" class by default.
Quite the same for "nice", defaulting to "10".
(LP: #134692)

  Vincent Lefevre <email address hidden> for finding it and providing a patch.
  Closes: #346341

  release. Moving it to v3.1 Stable.

* The environment variable LOCATE_PATH was not being used properly. It will
  now be used the same as in v2.7. Closes: #345646

  returns zero.

* Added documentation describing how /etc/updatedb.conf is used and what
  is supported to the README and the slocate.1 and updatedb.1 man pages.
* README.debian was removed in 3.0.beta.r1-1 to close bug 272131, but it was
  accidently readded in 3.0.beta.r2-1. I now have a use for it, so it is now
  here to stay.

1. By Kevin Lindsay <email address hidden>

Added a case to handle broken diversion. /usr/bin/locate and
/usr/bin/updatedb must be symlinks to /usr/bin/slocate. In the
case that they are not, the removal of the diversion fails.
A check is done to detect the diversion and forcefully removes
/usr/bin/locate and /usr/bin/updatedb before diverting the old
findutils binaries back.
(closes: #270762)
