Uses separate /boot and ext2 for automatic partioning with LVM and GRUB2

Bug Description

Binary package hint: partman-auto


Automatic partitioning of the hard disk for use with root on LVM and GRUB2 with the lucid alpha 3 netboot image will create a /boot ext2 partition a / ext4 partition. I found it surprizing that ext2 is still picked up here -- why not ext4 as well? Also, do we really need a /boot partition with GRUB2?

(Size of the hard disk was modest at 1.5 GB; not sure whether that plays a role)

Just noticed this myself. We don't need a separate /boot partition ( I've never used one on my manually setup lvm installs ), and it adds unneeded complexity. It certainly shouldn't be using ext2.
