Bug#841666: release-notes: recommend installing usrmerge on upgrade to stretch

Ansgar Burchardt-8
Package: release-notes
Tags: stretch

debootstrap enables merged-/usr by default since 1.0.85 (when installing
stretch or later only).  To match this on upgrades to stretch, I would
like to recommend installing `usrmerge` at the end of the upgrade.

A minor clarification:

Installing usrmerge on upgrades should probably not be recommended for
environments used to build packages.  This matches debootstrap's
behavior when using --variant=buildd (see #914208)

Could you please propose a paragraph to add to the release-notes for
this? You can add it as a patch here, literal text, or (easiest) as a MR
against the salsa archive:
https://salsa.debian.org/ddp-team/release-notes

NB: See also https://bugs.debian.org/914897 "tech-ctte: Should debootstrap
disable merged /usr by default?" for some background.

Due to systemd changes, currently usrmerge requires a reboot to complete.
To lower support load on the community, as the usrmerge author I suggest
that we wait to explicitly recommend users to install it until we will
have implemented running it from the initramfs or some other workaround.
Hence, for buster +1.
