Bug#1033867: cloud.debian.org: Please add Amazon hibernation agent to EC2 AMIs

Hi Dirk.  Since we don't have this in the archive yet, I've refiled this
as an RFP.  Once it's packaged, we can add it to the AMIs.

I've also verified in the past that it works on newer instance types,
though I believe hibernation of the older generation Xen based instance
types requires kernel patches that we don't have.  However, I think it's
fine to ignore those old instance types and focus on making things work
with modern ones.
