Bug Description

[Impact]
docker.io does not build on archs that require gccgo.

[Test Case]
Build docker.io in trusty on an arch that requires gccgo. I used arm64.
(Also need patch in LP: #1510288)

[Regression Risk]
This is an upstream patch that applies cleanly (other than file tree rearrangements), and it is adding new functionality.

I prepared a docker PPA with this update and asked our QA team to run some tests on it. Even though the binary builds and runs, we're still seeing docker crashes based on the older version of gccgo in trusty, so it still doesn't make sense to enable docker for gccgo in trusty at this time.

A fix for this is pending in the SRU queue - I'll ask an SRU team member to reject.
