* Add Modaliases: package header, so that ubuntu-drivers-common, PackageKit,
  and aptdaemon can pick up this package automatically when a covered piece
  of hardware is installed:
  - Add debian/gen-modaliases: Generate a dh_modalias input file covering
    all modaliases from all modules from the currently running kernel which
    need any firmware shipped by this package.
  - debian/rules: Add debian/linux-firmware-nonfree.modaliases target, which
    calls gen-modaliases. This should be called whenever new firmware
    gets added to this package, and occasionally for new kernels. It uses
    the system installed modules, though; fixing this to work on buildds
    would be highly welcome.
  - Add debian/linux-firmware-nonfree.modaliases: Result for current
    Ubuntu Quantal kernel 3.4.0-2-generic, generated by the rule above.
  - debian/control, debian/rules: Call dh_modaliases to insert the
    modaliases into the package header. Add dh-modaliases build dependency.
