chromium-browser should depend on kmod

Bug Description

The chromium-browser package should depend on the kmod package due to the following workaround in /usr/bin/chromium-browser:

lsmod |grep ^i915\ >/dev/null && export LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=1

There are situations in which chromium-browser can be installed without kmod already being installed such as in a container for Libertine (the convergence container for phones/tablets/future desktop).

I should add that nothing fails when lsmod is not present, but i915 detection will not work properly without it.
