Apport package hook for the Linux kernel

Bug Description

Attached is an apport package hook which could be used by the kernel packages to collect commonly needed information for a bug report. It should be installed as /usr/share/apport/package-hooks/<package name>.py (with hyphens transliterated to underscores, I think)

It can be run standalone for a sample of the data it collects.

I think I'll commit that to apport, if you don't mind. It's easier to maintain there, we don't need to require that you have some linux-common package installed, and uploading/building apport is much faster than the kernel.

OK. Do you agree that the package hook belongs in the kernel packages,
or would you rather have that in apport as well? The kernel team is
probably in a better position to maintain it.

Marking Fix released. Martin uploaded this ages ago, but the bug wasn't closed because it was open on linux and fixed in apport.
