Bug Description

We are building a shipping a basically empty package which claimed to be the source package for this kernel. As this linux-source-NNN packages are intended as input to things like usermode linux, and that should be using the one from the primary package. We should drop this empty and missleading package.

We are explicitly turning off the contents of the source package:

  debian.*/rules.d/amd64.mk: do_source_package = false

But this only suppresses the contents of the package. We also have to remove it from the control file to get rid of it completely.

Confirmed that linux-aws (4.4.0-1018.27) and linux-gke (4.4.0-1014.14), which are currently in -proposed, are not producing the linux-*-source packages anymore.
