Bug#570172: initramfs hooks are not executed

Package: brltty
Version: 4.1-4
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu lucid ubuntu-patch


It seems that initramfs hooks must be executable for them to be run during
an initramfs rebuild.  brltty's hook is not executable:

$ mkinitramfs -v -o /tmp/test.initrd
/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/brltty ignored: not executable

The following patch to debian/rules should solve the problem:
