I don't think we need xserver udebs at this point.

Yeah, there's no such thing as g-i.  Theoretically there could be in the
future, if I understand it correctly, by using kvm on s390x.  Because that
would give you some sort of framebuffer.  But with native hardware: no
graphics.  (Unless g-i would support some sort of network-console with VNC.
But that would entail a huge initrd I presume.)
