[MIR] Please promote zram-config to main

zram-config (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In the past LTSP used compcache as a way to compress RAM to get swap.

That feature was dropped from the kernel some releases ago and replaced by zram.
zram-config is the easiest way to configure zram at boot time.

The package itself is just a single upstart job configuring zram.
There's no binary, daemon or even config files in that package besides that single upstart job.

Bug wise, there are quite a few install failures caused by zram trying to start at installation time, these might be caused by the kernel failing to load the module or by using a custom kernel lacking zram support, we're not expecting any such issue with LTSP as the LTSP chroot is pretty much identical for all our users.

However, if these bugs are a concern, I'm happy to patch the current zram-config job to better deal with errors (call "stop" when it's unable to configure the service, instead of just failing).

This looks trivial to me, but since it does use an upstart job, I'll assign to the security MIR member.
