Bug Description

In Bug #1515872 we pulled IBMVSCSI out as a module. Ensure this is commonised to powerpc, and ensure that this and ibmveth are both in linux-image and both packaged in udebs.

Confirmed that the new linux-image gets a working initrd and boots, even without -extra installed:

adconrad@kernel-test:~$ dpkg -l linux-image-extra\*
dpkg-query: no packages found matching linux-image-extra*
adconrad@kernel-test:~$ uname -a
Linux kernel-test 4.3.0-1-generic #10-Ubuntu SMP Wed Dec 2 21:06:22 UTC 2015 ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux
adconrad@kernel-test:~$ lsmod | grep ibm
ibmvscsi 34265 2
ibmveth 31062 0
