openafs-modules-virtual should use modules built for -server

Upstream bug:


For reasons that escape my comprehension, the -virtual kernel flavor in Ubuntu installs a -server kernel and identifies itself in uname -r as a -server kernel.

This means that openafs-modules-virtual should depend on openafs-modules-2.6.whatever-whatever-server instead of -virtual. Using openafs-modules-server isn't a substitute, because that depends on the -server kernel image, which conflicts with the -virtual kernel image.

The best thing to do might be to actually look at the file contents of each linux-image- package when we're building the metapackages.

We agreed at release-team that any new work on our openafs support should be in the direction of supporting dkms, not in the direction of new development on our autodebathenified openafs module packages, so I'm WONTFIXing this.
