Bug Description

Rather than randomly mkdir/rmdir'ing /usr/lib/linux/triggers all of the binary packages that use triggers should contain this directory. This will allow dpkg to reference count the directory and detect left over files correctly.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-cosmic' to 'verification-done-cosmic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-cosmic' to 'verification-failed-cosmic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
