Thanks Radek.

I've just noticed that there's a small issue with linux kernel dir name during
the upgrade:

After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

I'm not sure which version I had in my freerunner before trying to update it to
v44. I'd suggest you to write next qtmoko version in /etc/issue{.net} files as
it's not a pure Debian chroot. So users will be able to easily identify which
is the current qtmoko version they have installed.
