Ubuntu builds scsi disk support and ext4 as modules, these modules
are needed for d-i's initrd to be able to install the system.

My previous patch included dependencies for ext4 module as well,
as per dannf's review comments kernel-wedge figures this out.

I tested the installer with those two modules added to d-i/modules 
and the installer works as expected. I was able to install (arm64) 
system with ubuntu-installer built with just ext4 and sd_mod modules 
added to debian.master/d-i/modules/XX.

Modules used by the installer after adding ext4 and sd_mod are:

~ # lsmod | grep sd_mod
sd_mod                 34070  0
scsi_mod              200422  7
~ # lsmod | grep ext4
ext4                  551651  0
crc16                   1618  1 ext4
jbd2                   92473  1 ext4
mbcache                 5775  1 ext4
~ #

And this resolves all the dependencies required.

These set of patches reverts my previous patch that was commited 
to Y and master-next and introduces the correct changes required by d-i.
