Bug#762177: lintian: allow Testsuite: autopkgtest-pkg-{perl,ruby}

Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.27
X-Debbugs-Cc: autopkgtest-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org

Newer versions of autopkgtest [1] use Testsuite: autopkgtest-pkg-perl
and autopkgtest-pkg-ruby to activate "implicit test control files"
instead of copying the same file in thousands of packages.

These currently trigger the "unknown-testsuite" and
"inconsistent-testsuite-field" lintian warnings. Please allow at least
the two current extensions, or alternatively whitelist autopkgtest-*.

Martin Pitt says he's "slightly leaning towards well-known values to
guard against typos" [2], but I'm cc'ing the autopkgtest-devel list for
further discussion.
