Checkbox should support an alias for the linux kernel package

Bug Description

When reporting bugs with apport, Checkbox can use the requires field in a test to determine the relevant package for the test. The problem is that there is no way for a requires expression to isolate the package corresponding to the currently running kernel. So, the package registry should support the concept of aliases so that a requires expression could be defined as: package.alias == 'linux'.
