Yes, we are planning to add new entry to /etc/apt/preferences. Take a look at https://github.com/google/build-debian-cloud/pull/5/files for the exact changes.And yes we should add manifest entries for it in the bootstrap-vz based code you have been working on. I will send out a patch for it.

new entry to /etc/apt/preferences.
I've been working on moving scripts building GCE images to bootstrap-vz;
you can find the latest version in my repository:
in branch gce.
There is task in providers.gce.tasks.apt.PreferKernelsFromBackports
which makes apt prefer kernels from backports.
It creates file in /etc/apt/preferences; maybe, if there is more
people interested in using packages from backports, it would
make sense to add manifest entry describing such cases?
