This is part of the xsfbs scripts that are included automatically in the
maintainer scripts of all X packages. We are supposed to clean all this
one day.

For now, the LAPTOP variable is at least still used in xserver-xorg
postinst to switch to 16 bits per pixels when using the nv driver on
laptops. You didn't imagine that would be related, did you? :)
