[Pkg-security-team] Maintenance of aircrack-ng

Hi all,

Please feel free to push the repo. Gianfranco, i've just cleaned the
aircrack-ng repo from pkg-security (made a new one). I tried to gbp
import-dscs but i got some errors, so if you could make that for me it
would be great!
Also, thanks a lot for your help!

About Carlos's considerations:

> 1) This don't looks ok to me:
>     - 000-Airmon_needs_bash.diff: Drop because upstream replaced
> airmon-ng with airmon-zc (closes: #772193).
> Mainly because airmon-ng is still shipped on the package. And also
> because upstream didn't replaced one with the other. They ship both.
> So, I'm fine with shipping airmon-zc, but not with removing airmon-ng or
> making it worse, If upstream removes airmon-ng then fine, but meanwhile
> that don't happens let's ship it with the /bin/bash shebang.

I'm sorry, the description is misleading, what in fact i should've wrote is
"Drop because airmon doesn't have bashisms anymore, fixed upstream"

I definitely will do that :)

ethtool and usbutils are dependendies of airmon-ng[1][2][3].

Thanks Carlos, please join the team so we can release the new version soon
(remember there's still some TODOs on debian/TODO). When i finish them, i
will send another email asking for your confirmation on releasing the new
version, in case you wanna double check the changes.
