Bug#1035014: installation-reports: Graphical installer has Xorg "no screens found" error

Control: reassign -1 xserver-xorg-core-udeb 2:21.1.1-1
Control: affects -1 debian-installer

Hello debian-x,

Any objections to my merging/uploading this?

For completeness:

A friend of mine tested all 3 available options (VBoxVGA, VMSVGA, and
VBoxSVGA) in VirtualBox, on both Windows and Apple hosts, and the
graphical installer worked fine for him in all cases, so it looks like
the VirtualBox reports we've received are about a different issue (and
we're lacking feedback at the moment).
