Bug Description

The maas-cluster-controller package depends on syslinux-dev to provide /usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0, in response to bug #1328659. However, as the name implies, 'syslinux-dev' is not meant to be used at runtime. And in the newer versions of the syslinux package in Debian, the syslinux-dev package has been dropped.

maas-cluster-controller needs to be adapted to use the pxelinux package, and look for /usr/lib/PXELINUX/pxelinux.0 in preference over /usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0.

This is currently blocking an updated version of syslinux in vivid-proposed, and needs to be addressed for vivid release.
