Bug#630006: libffi: please add a udeb

Package: libffi
Version: 3.0.10~rc8-2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu ubuntu-patch oneiric

As of GLib 2.29.4, libgobject-2.0.so.0 has a hard dependency on libffi.
Since libgobject is in graphical d-i builds and thus has a udeb, libffi
now needs to have a udeb too.  The following patch should be sufficient.

(Noticed because this is currently breaking Ubuntu d-i builds.)

  * Add libffi6-udeb, since libgobject-2.0 requires libffi6 as of GLib
