Bug#45121: dpkg: No option to rebuild /usr from /var/state

Subject: dpkg: No option to rebuild /usr from /var/state
Package: dpkg


In a case when /usr is lost but /var/state has been preserved, I feel
that all information needed to rebuild /usr is available. There should
be an option for dpkg to re-install all packages that are known to be
installed on this system.
