Bug#471172: Please add nvclock and toshset to laptop task
The acpi-support package has received numerous requests (see #410918,
#434566, #457387, #438665, #445900) to move nvclock and toshset from the
Depends list to the Recommends list. As these packages are actually
required to make specific laptops function (and the goal of the
acpi-support package is to make all laptops "just work"), this is only
possible if these packages are installed by default by the laptop task.
When this is done, acpi-support will move these dependencies to the
Recommends list, so that people may remove these packages at will.
A patch is attached.
