Import patches-unapplied version 1.3-8ubuntu1 to ubuntu/vivid-proposed

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 3a66be1dd19ebf9c59289bd40fd62de4aca1007b

New changelog entries:
  * Fix the "ESC i A" (enable cutter) command patch to correctly send only on
    printers which support it (LP: #1342979).
  * Update the driver to use current CUPS APIs (not the older deprecated ones)
    and fix some compile-time warnings
  * Use the PPD API to get the value of the MediaType flag, which is used to
    pass the "Roll-fed media" flag into the driver
  * Correct the margins for QL-series P-Touch paper-label printers - these
    have a fixed 3mm margin (see the command spec) while the PT-series
    laminated plastic label printers have no appreciable margins.
  * Correct the format of the "ESC i z" (Print Information) command to match
    what is specified in the P-touch 500 raster command spec. Notably set the
    "passed parameter valid" bits, and send valid values for die-cut labels
    and continuous paper rolls.
  * Send the "ESC i d" (Set Margin) command for QL series printers. This is
    required by the command spec. The margin is set to 3mm for continuous
    paper and zero for die-cut (see the command spec)
  * Fix an issue with margins in the driver (disable blank-line padding). This
    was partly responsible for the "excess paper feed" issue.
  * Suppress the spurious "ESC i z" which was sent with incorrect contents at
    the start of the job.
  * Send 350 bytes of NULL/no-op commands at the start of the job. This allows
    the driver to recover the printer into a known state if communication was
    interrupted mid-transfer. This is recommended in the command spec.
  * Remove the "determined by page size" option from "Roll-fed media" as this
    no longer works.
  * Remove the "Advance Media" option, as this allowed users to configure the
    driver to generate print control codes which are illegal per the Brother
    documentation. This is now fixed at "Advance at end of job" (send a Form
    Feed at the end of every page, except the last which has an Eject
    command instead).
  * Merge in the changes formerly provided by send-esc-i-A-for-QL-only.patch.
