Have rebuilt Ubuntu's xen package for wheezy.

The results are available for testing.

The most significant change I had to remove the
tools-firmware-etherboot-fix-e1000.patch file because Debian wheezy
doesn't have the 8086100e.rom but it does have the e1000_82540.rom file.

UBUNTU: Fix pxe boot with e1000 emulation

This seems to be a slight revert as the same rom name has been used before.
The main problem is that ipxe builds the e1000_82540.rom with invalid
pci id in the rom header. Which is required by the hvmloader.
The 8086100e.rom is just the same but with a name the build engine can
cope with.
