Doesnt make sense to package linuxbios itself or buildrom at all,
as it would only include the sources. Instead, we should provide
linuxbios images with linux payload for download. 

Packaging binary bios images in debian is kind of useless since you
would flash them and deinstall the package again, which is not easier
than downloading the stuff from our web page and flash that.
