Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: With the current linux source package hooks the user is prompted for answers to a series of questions. In many cases the user really doesn't know enough to answer the questions correctly.

Fix: The package-hooks for the linux-source package have been modified to remove all of these questions.

Testcase: The modified code was copied into the correct location on a Natty installed system and tested that it performed as expected. It did.

The source_linux.py isn't a part of the upstream code for Apport - it only appears in the Ubuntu package of it.
