Test many reverse dependencies and verify they still work as before.

There's a couple of new patches over Trusty in this SRU. They came from Debian and should be safe, but we can remove them if you'd prefer.

I've just uploaded the next point release since the first was still in the queue. I did decide to remove the Debian patches that we don't need in Trusty, so there's just one changed patch which is a reworking of one we already had.
