  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Make sure to also search the signed modules (LP: #1931514).
      Credit goes to Bin Li for the first version of this patch.
  * debian/tests/control:
    - Add dependency on alsa-utils, since the autopkgtest requires it
      for the sl-modem detection plugin.
  * ubuntu-drivers:
    - Do not install recommended dependencies when calling
      "install --gpgpu" (LP: #1898601). The whole point of
      having --gpgpu was to reduce the amount of the
      installed dependencies.

  [ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
  * debian/control:
    - Drop dependency on alsa-utils as we want to start using ubuntu-drivers in
      the server installer but do not want alsa-utils there. The code using
      aplay to detect certain kinds of modem will fail to detect them if aplay
      is not installed but will not crash. As alsa-utils is in the
      desktop-common seed there should be no loss of functionality anywhere
      ubuntu-drivers is used today.

1931514 SRU: The NVIDIA X server Settings is blank when under Intel mode
1898601 'ubuntu-drivers --gpgpu install' installs a lot of unnecessary packages, including a full desktop environment on Ubuntu Server
