Bug Description

These drivers are for hardware that is ancient, unmaintained and unused. The metapackage for video drivers dropped them from the depends list in 11.10, and noone has asked them to be added back. It's time to remove them from the archive to make future ABI transitions slightly easier for the X team.

the displaylink KMS driver in the quantal kernel and x-x-v-modesetting replaces -displaylink, so added it to the list to remove.

ubuntu arm port doesn't run on the openmoko freerunner hw, so added -glamo to the list.
