debian/patches/series/99-linux-pref-substr.patch: Add config var to allow user to prefer Linux kernel versions with a particular substring

192. By Colin Watson on 2014-07-24

* Force grub-pc/mixed_legacy_and_grub2 to be reshown, rather than failing
  when it was already seen (closes: #749571).
* Build with GCC 4.9 (closes: #748003).
* Build for sparc64 (closes: #753784).
* Fix an infinite loop in grub-mkconfig when kernel paths contain regex
  metacharacters. Thanks to Heimo Stranner for the report.
* On upgrade, if we find that one of the install devices no longer exists,
  ask the debconf question at priority critical rather than high.

* Add the true module to the signed image, since 05_debian_theme uses it.
  Thanks to Dimitri John Ledkov for the report.
* Limit test suite parallelisation to 1; the test suite seems to have some
  isolation problems at higher levels at the moment (closes: #746856).
* Simplify override_dh_install a bit.
* Backport patches from upstream to make the network stack more responsive
  on busy networks (LP: #1314134).

[ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
* Add support for nvme device in grub-mkdevicemap (closes: #746396,

  - Fix partmap, cryptodisk, and abstraction handling in grub-mkconfig
    (closes: #735935).
  - btrfs: fix get_root key comparison failures due to endianness.
* Build-depend on automake (>= 1.10.1) to ensure that it meets configure's
  requirements (LP: #1299041).
* When installing an image for use with UEFI Secure Boot, generate a
  load.cfg even if there are no device abstractions in use (LP: #1298399).

[ Jon Severinsson ]
* Add Tanglu support, as in Debian except:
  - Enable splash screen by default (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable quiet and quick boot (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable the grub-common init script (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable dynamic gfxpayload (as Ubuntu)

* Fix shift-held-down test not to clear other modifier key states
  (LP: #843804).
* Explicitly pass an appropriate --target to grub-install in the postinst
  (suggested by Jordan Uggla).
* Backport from upstream:
  - Use bootaa64.efi instead of bootaarch64.efi on arm64 to comply with
    EFI specification. Also use grubaa64.efi for consistency.

187. By Colin Watson on 2014-01-28

* Add a number of EFI debugging commands to the signed image (lsefi,
  lsefimmap, lsefisystab, lssal).
* Add gfxterm_background to the signed image so that background_image
  works in UEFI Secure Boot mode. Thanks to syscon-hh for the report.
