Bug#678726: Please drop cpufrequtils from task-laptop; linux-image now has a sensible default configuration

Package: tasksel
Version: 3.09
Severity: normal

As of version 3.2.21-1 of the Linux images, the Linux kernel now loads
any necessary cpufreq module itself based on cpuid, and the kernel
images have defaulted to the ondemand cpufreq governor for a while now.
Given those defaults, users no longer need cpufrequtils unless they want
to put their system into a non-default less energy-efficient

So, please drop cpufrequtils from task-laptop.
