Bug Description

While looking into another problem, I installed apport and tried to use ubuntu-bug to file a bug on the kernel. It came back with the following error:
root@localhost:/var/log# ubuntu-bug linux

*** Collecting problem information

The collected information can be sent to the developers to improve the

*** Problem in linux-image-2.6.35-1004-linaro-omap

The problem cannot be reported:

This is not a genuine Linaro package

Press any key to continue...

This was using the 20100831-2 image. I also tried to use apport on a recent image, I believe it was 20100830-3, and did not have this problem, so it seems to be a recent regression. I also tried running apt-get update and retrying, but it still complains. If it weren't for that, I would think this was related to bug #497796

Added /etc/apport/native-origins.d/uses-ubuntu-binaries to base-files in the Linaro overlay ppa to address this. However, the fix is incomplete because it turns out apport's handling of native-origins.d is buggy: it tries to open the files relative to the cwd instead of the .d directory. Opening a task on apport for this.
