'nosplash' doesn't work because it isn't passed through by user-params.
Use debian-installer/splash=false for this behaviour instead
(LP: #548954).

Historically, Ubuntu's default behaviour in the absence of command-line
arguments to the installer has been to pass 'splash' to the installed
system so that it gets a splash screen (and similarly 'quiet'). There's
some argument that this behaviour should require passing 'splash' to the
installer as well, but it's too late in the Lucid cycle for this change.
Nevertheless, we need a way to configure images such that they don't get
'splash' in the installed system, so introduce a 'nosplash' argument
which inhibits this, for use by the server CD (LP: #548954).

* Ask grub-installer/only_debian at high priority again (LP: #47135).
  Originally, in Warty, we ensured that this question wouldn't be visible
  by default to support simple installations of Ubuntu with as few
  questions as possible. However, since then, we wrote Ubiquity, which
  has taken over responsibility for the simple installation case, and it's
  become clear that automatically installing GRUB to the first disk's MBR
  is inadequate for many more complex situations. Ironically, Ubiquity
  makes this option easily accessible from the "Advanced" dialog box, but
  Ubuntu's d-i required a special boot parameter to display it.
* Update grub-installer/bootdev text to avoid GRUB device naming that
  changed between GRUB Legacy and GRUB 2, and to use libata-style device
  naming since that is more accurate for most people (LP: #391775)

Bind-mount /proc and /sys while running grub-install (LP: #527210).

Fix GPT detection to account for changed fdisk output (LP: #538100).

Fix partition offset handling for GRUB Legacy.

[ Joel Ebel ]
Add missing $serial to get proper detection of serial console options

Preseed grub-pc/install_devices_empty while installing grub-pc, since we
deliberately defer calling grub-install until a later point. Thanks to
Dustin Kirkland for debugging assistance.

* Add $partition_offset to $bootpart when deciding which partition to make
  active based on GRUB-style device names (found while testing fix for LP
* Use grub-probe to convert device names rather than relying on
* Only add removable devices to device.map if using GRUB Legacy.
* Use an appropriate OS device name rather than (hd0) if possible.
* When installing from a non-CD medium, we only need to reset the default
  boot device if we would otherwise end up installing GRUB to the
  installation medium.
* Convert device names to by-id form before preseeding

Don't check for LVM when we've already worked out that we're installing
