Clarify ThunderX kernel support description

There is technically other HW not yet supported by Xenial - e.g.
certain performance counters, VFIO, etc - so just use IPMI as
an example. Also note the (strong) possibility that more hw
will be added via SRUs.

539. By dann frazier

Make the bios-setup section apply to arm64 as well

To make the existing ARM-specific section blend in, rename the "ARM firmware"
section to "Systems with U-Boot firmware", and demote all u-boot specific
sections to subsections of it.

ISO images for arm64 won't be available until 16.04.1

List Cavium ThunderX as a supported arm64 platform

purge more references to desktops

535. By Steve Langasek

* build/arch-options: add a new 'supports-desktop' condition, which for the
  moment is set only on amd64, i386, and powerpc as the only architectures
  that any flavors are building desktop images for. This may warrant
  further refinement later.
* disable various references to desktops when 'supports-desktop' is not

534. By Steve Langasek

en/welcome/what-is-debian.xml: drop another outdated reference to Ubuntu
being a "desktop" system.

533. By Steve Langasek

what-is-ubuntu.xml: long-overdue language updates. Don't call Ubuntu a
"desktop operating system", and list all of the currently-supported

532. By Martin Pitt

en/appendix/chroot-install.xml: Revert Ubuntu delta about setting UTC in
/etc/default/rcS instead of /etc/adjtime. (LP: #1541532)

531. By Steve Langasek

* Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
  - Extensive (although possibly incomplete) Ubuntu branding, adjustments
    for our mirror layout, etc.
  - Build only English (for now, until we figure out how to avoid trashing
    translations quite so badly with Ubuntu branding etc.).
  - Drop build-dependency on poxml for now, since we don't ship any
  - Add "Ubuntu and Debian" and "What is Ubuntu?" section, text borrowed
    from the Ubuntu web site. Disable the "What is Debian GNU/Linux?"
  - Build only Ubuntu architectures (amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc,
    ppc64el, s390x).
  - Direct installation reports to ubuntu-users for now.
  - Document mounting /sys in various places.
  - Update chroot-install guide for language packs; add
    a bit more advice about installing grub.
  - Document our root password and sudo arrangements.
  - Adjust various memory and disk space requirements. Talk about the
    default Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu tasks rather than Debian tasks.
  - Document network-console/authorized_keys_url feature
  - Document mirror/udeb/components.
  - Document scheme for preseeding the use of CC.archive.ubuntu.com
  - Document how to override the weak password check.
  - Document preseeding user-setup's home directory encryption facility.
  - Document new simplified partman preseeding.
  - Document partman-auto-lvm/guided_size.
  - Document partman/default_filesystem.
  - Document live-installer/net-image.
  - Improve examples of tasksel/first preseeding to avoid mentioning
    standard, which is installed by default.
  - Document pkgsel/update-policy.
  - Document pkgsel/updatedb.
  - Document apt-setup/security_path.
  - Disable documentation of win32-loader.
  - Document netboot-style USB images. Still mention the hd-media images,
    but they're downplayed since many USB sticks are too small for a full
    Ubuntu ISO image.
  - Retain delta for commented-out OldWorld Mac support because it's easier
    than reverting it; but at this point OldWorld Macs will almost
    certainly never be supported in Ubuntu or Debian.
  - Remove comments about automatic installation methods that have been
    removed from Ubuntu.
  - Document Kickstart installations.
  - Unset supports-floppy-boot for all our architectures.
  - Don't recommend passing http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to
  - Document that i586 processors and i686 without cmov are no longer
  - Translate '&debian;' and '&debian-gnu;' xml entities to 'Ubuntu',
    allowing us to significantly reduce the branding delta.
  - Bump names for xenial.
  - Bump kernelversion to 4.3.
  - Disable all the documentation of loadlin, not just half of it.
  - Never enable the "new-arch" status for any Ubuntu archs.
  - Set the archive url dynamically based on the architecture, to cover
    ports.u.c vs. archive.u.c. LP: #1391019.
  - Revert installation guide changes that say to use /etc/adjtime instead
    of etc/default/rcS; /etc/adjtime is evilbadwrong and not used in
  - Don't include information about tasks that Ubuntu doesn't have.
* Revert the Debian change to mark "graphical install" as the default, which
  is not a supported option on our d-i based images.
