nova-compute-xen depends on xen-linux-system which does not exist

Bug Description

nova-compute-xen depends on xen-linux-system which does not exist. The dependency system cannot account for the requirement that the system must be booted into dom0, so this will need to be arranged by the sysadmin manually. Packages xen-hypervisor-4.1-amd64 or xen-hypervisor-4.1-i386 can help with this.

SRU Justification:
1. Impact: installing nova-compute-xen fails with "Depends: xen-linux-system but it is not installable"
2. How bug was addressed: dependency on xen-linux-system was dropped
3. Patch: attached
4. Test case: add universe and "apt-get install nova-compute-xen"
5. Regression potential: I can't how might cause a regression.

Users will need to install xen-hypervisor-4.1-amd64 or xen-hypervisor-4.1-i386 manually, but we can't use a normal package dependency since we currently can't account for the way the system was booted in a dependency.

Hello Robie, or anyone else affected,

Accepted nova into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Marking precise task as Triaged, a pocket copy from oneiric-updates should close it once it is verified.

I just tried to use the oneiric-proposed version and it seems to continue with the broken dependency.

Confirmed broken - thanks Rogério. It looks like this has regressed due to a future SRU.
