Sorry for last mail, I forget to add Subject before sending.

> Description
Bug 360966 request to have bnx2x module in the installer. I have sent the patch
for add the firmware, kernel module and libcrc32c for dependence, but I did not
notice when libcrc32c initial, it will call request_module() to load crc32c.ko

Bug reporter reports that bnx2x needs crc32c.ko to work, and it is already in
the crypto-modules, the simplest way to solve is let the nic-shared-modules
depends on crypto-modules.

Subject: [PATCH] UBUNTU: [Config] Let nic-shared-modules depends on crypto-modules

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/360966

The bnx2x modules depends on libcrc32c.ko, and libcrc32c.ko requests crc32c.ko
when initial.

Since the crypto-module contains crc32c.ko. I think the best way to solve this
issue is let the nic-shared-modules depends on crypto-modules.
