Bug Description

As of bug #1274702 the hv-kvp-daemon-init pre-reqs the correct packages to enable host<->guest communications for instances running on Microsoft Hyper-V. This package is in main, I would like to see it added to the server seed so that trusty install media has these packages for hyper-v available. This is not a request to install the packages by default. Storage usage is minimal @ ~40kB on the installation media.

Package description:
 The init script starts the user-land daemon for supporting the KVP protocol
 on Microsoft Hyper-V instances. The KVP protocol provides key-pair exchanges
 between the kernel and the hyper-visor and is used to report instance
 demographic details back to Hyper-V.

Installations that are not running atop Hyper-V are unaffected.

hv-kvp-daemon-init pulls in the following requisites:
 - linux-cloud-tools-virtual
  - linux-cloud-tools-common
  - linux-cloud-tools-<ver>-generic
   - linux-cloud-tools-<ver>

hv-kvp-daemon-init with it's requisites require 39.3kB of space on the installation media.

Corrected bug description to note that this is for inclusion on install media, not part of default installation package set.
