Bug#883167: autopkgtest: autopkgtest-satdep.deb unpack fails on wheezy

Package: autopkgtest
Version: 5.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

autopkgtest fails when testing older distributions like wheezy.
The problem seems to be that autopkgtest-satdep.deb uses xz
compression not available in wheezy:

autopkgtest [18:41:24]: ERROR: "dpkg --unpack /tmp/autopkgtest-lxc.dxwzd3ea/downtmp/autopkgtest-satdep.deb" failed with stderr "dpkg-deb: error: archive '/tmp/autopkgtest-lxc.dxwzd3ea/downtmp/autopkgtest-satdep.deb' contains not understood data member control.tar.xz, giving up
dpkg: error processing /tmp/autopkgtest-lxc.dxwzd3ea/downtmp/autopkgtest-satdep.deb (--unpack):
 subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 2

Setting the gzip compression fixes the issue:

  subprocess.check_call(['dpkg-deb', '-Zgzip', '-b', pkgdir, deb.host],
