I became aware recently that this was never fixed.  Rick Thomas has
two OpenRD (Ultimate and Client) and could test the images.

Since bullseye is the last release to support these devices (I think?
I never know what the status of armel is), I wonder if it would make
sense to add the images back to d-i in a point release.

Basically to revert the change to build/config/armel/kirkwood/netboot.cfg
from commit e799d626f45e9c706d05003e3112d481db2870a9

Vagrant, do you think you could do a bullseye d-i checkout, make that
change and make the OpenRD images available for Rick to test?
(I don't have any ARM machines)
