[PATCH] Remove 23etc_modules script

Bug Description

This patch is one of several needed to fix sound on PowerPC. I've also added a patch to hw-detect - bug 1296373 .

The script 23etc_modules causes snd_powermac to be loaded on every powerpc machine installed using a live/destop iso. However, snd_powermac is only used on older machines. Indeed, force loading snd_powermac is what has been causing the fatal "Fixing recursive fault rebooted is needed!" bug - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1066435

The attached patch removes the whole 23etc_modules script since I can't see what else it does apart from add snd_powemac to /etc/modules.

Removing 23etc_modules will mean that some old powerpc machines will lose sound on the live iso, however, it is likely that most of these will install via the alternate text 'debian installer'. Hw-detect will sort out adding snd_powermac to /etc/modules so there will be no loss of functionality on the installed system.

It would be excellent if this could make it into Trusty.
