Bug Description


This change is required for MAAS hardware enablement - for MAAS to be able to deploy 12.04 systems on ARM.

[Test Case]

On 12.04:

1. apt-get install maas
2. Run "sudo maas-import-isos" as advised
3. Run "sudo maas createsuperuser" and create a superuser username and password with ubuntu/ubuntu.
4. PXE boot a system and point it to MAAS using DHCP next-server with filename set to "pxelinux.0".
5. Go to http://<maas server>/MAAS, log in as ubuntu/ubuntu, and verify that one node has appeared in the MAAS.

[Regression Potential]
MAAS enlistment is the only thing at risk here. After this SRU, maas-enlist will enlist with an additional "subarchitecture" field with no change to anything else. I have checked that MAAS on 12.04 ignores this field. But if there is a problem, it'll be with MAAS enlistment.

Original bug description:

For ARM support, maas-enlist needs to post the subarch, as returned in the second half of `archdetect` output. For example, in "armhf/highbank", it needs to post the "highbank" part to MAAS as well.

This will require an SRU to Precise in order for MAAS to be able to deploy Precise on ARM.
