Bug Description

[Impact]

crda is required to setup wifi. For the main kernel, the modules extra package depends on crda so it's pulled in automatically but the raspi kernel doesn't provide a modules extra package with the result that the crda package is missing from the raspi images. Apparently building images with device-specific packages installed is not possible.

[Test Case]

Spin up a preinstalled server image and:
$ dpkg -l crda
dpkg-query: no packages found matching crda

[Regression Potential]

Low. This will just pull in the crda package with its dependencies.

[Original Description]

We need to add the "iw" package to the pi images (for configuration of the wifi region upon boot). However, as we don't have per-device seeds this can't be placed directly in the seed for the images (without affecting other images which don't need it). Hence, adding it as a "fake" dependency of the pi-specific kernel package is a reasonably clean solution.

Actually linux-modules-extra-$ver-generic depends on "crda | wireless-crda" which then depends on iw and seems like a better fit for linux-raspi.

summary: - Add iw dependency
+ Add crda dependency
