When there are multiple kernels, there remain /vmlinuz.old
and /initrd.img.old on chroot, so I attach another proposed patch to
clean those files.

It seems to me any Debian system with >1 kernel installed has those
symlinks, so I'd like to be explained what the advantage of removing
those in Live systems would be.

debian-live images do not deviate from debian except for live specific
things. or in other words: if you want non-live specific things fixed,
they need to be fixed in debian, live-build is not the place to do it.

for your local builds, you can use a local hook to remove them, or,
configure the kernel packages to not create them in the first place.
