* Add udeb needed for the graphical install on non-Linux ports since
fbdev is Linux-only (Closes: #596595).
* Merge from upstream master up to 0b02c68581, including:
- Refuse to load if there's a kernel driver bound to the device
* This makes the need for the following patch go away, so remove:
- 001_ubuntu_bail_when_kms_active.patch
* Remove libdrm-dev and x11proto-xf86dri-dev build-dep accordingly.
* As a consequence, libdrm is no longer used, even if libdrm-dev is
present at build-time (Closes: #596594).
* Update debian/copyright from upstream COPYING.
* Bump xutils-dev build-dep for newer macros.
