Package: initscripts
Version: 2.88dsf-13.1
Severity: normal

Please remove this code from /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh, it is not needed
with modern kernel which do not support BSD ptys and the udev check is
not reliable anymore due to /run/.

        # Set pseudo-terminal access permissions.
        if [ ! -e /dev/.udev ] && [ -c /dev/ttyp0 ]
                chmod -f 666 /dev/tty[p-za-e][0-9a-f]
                chown -f root:tty /dev/tty[p-za-e][0-9a-f]
