      Umm, there are lots of things in postinstall that aren't required
 to make sure the system will boot.  By defacto, postinstall does
 everything it can to upgrade a system (the only major things it doesn't
 do is create new users and groups).
      The problem with this PR is that it is extremely vague.  Is
 postinstall failing to add files, fix them, delete them, or what?  All
 we have is a list of files, we don't know what the submitter is
 expecting postinstall to do with them.
