incompatibility between Bumblebee and concurrent installations of
current plus legacyYYYxx Nvidia driver series on the same system.
* Add ignore-systemd-logind-noise.patch and
ignore-failure-to-set-DRM-interface.patch to ignore red herrings.
(Closes: #822665)
* Set Ubuntu default kernel driver to nvidia, which is provided as a
modprobe alias by the nvidia-XYZ packages.

* Use dh_strip --dbgsym-migration to cleanly migrate from old-style dbg
packages to autogenerated dbgsym packages.

* Delete /etc/modprobe.d/bumblebee.conf already when bumblebee is removed,
to not keep the blacklists active until it is purged.  (LP: #1242785)
