Bug Description

Binary package hint: intel-gpu-tools

This package includes tools that used to be provided in the debug version of the -intel driver package, but have been broken out into their own standalone package. Several useful benchmarks/tests have been added as well. Since the output from these tools is necessary to debug certain severe Intel graphics bugs such as X freezes, we would like to enable apport to make use of these tools directly. Historically we've hand held the bug reporter through the steps of installing and running the tools by hand, but this has widely been seen as a royal pain in the rear for all parties (esp. since you have to find a second machine and try to ssh into the frozen one in order to run the tools). Having them be automatically run by apport will significantly increase our ability to troubleshoot these kind of severe problems swiftly with least hassle to the user, but in order to do that we need intel-gpu-tools in main.

Approved. Please get it seeded and/or make it a dependency of something (in lucid). Once it appears in component-mismatches, this will be promoted.
