I am not convinced that this change is appropriate. No metapackages depend on linux-image-unsigned-$ver, this is NOT expected to be installed on end user systems (it's an implementation detail of our kernel signing process) and I don't think it's necessary to handle it specially for apt autoremoval because it should NEVER be present on the system as a dependency of another package.

So why does any actual user have this package installed except by manual user action that they can also revert manually?

If this *is* needed, then please include a complete step-by-step test case for verification of the fix.
