Bug Description

$ ll /usr/share/man/man8/kvm-nbd.8 /usr/share/man/man8/qemu-nbd.8
ls: cannot access /usr/share/man/man8/qemu-nbd.8: No such file or directory
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Okt 4 02:44 /usr/share/man/man8/kvm-nbd.8 -> qemu-nbd.8
$ dpkg -S /usr/share/man/man8/kvm-nbd.8
qemu-utils: /usr/share/man/man8/kvm-nbd.8

============================
SRU Justification:
1. Impact: man pages for kvm-nbd and kvm-img are bad links.
2. Development fix: the raring source fixes the symlinks by pointing them at the .gz files. (committed to VCS - the package in archive simply does not have the links for either programs or manpages)
3. Stable fix: the fix for precise is to fix the symlinks, same as in raring (in VCS)
4. Test case: man kvm-nbd; man kvm-img
5. Regression potential: none
============================

Thanks for reporting this bug. Indeed, /usr/share/man/man8/kvm-nbd.8 needs to be kvm-nbd.8.gz in qemu-utils.links, and same with kvm-img.
