[SRU bionic] linux-buildinfo support

Add linux-buildinfo package support.  This package contains all of the
ABI information accumulated during the build.  This means we no longer
have to install that data onto the end-user system, and means we only 
have to download the ABI data when doing getabis.

Pull request below.

Proposing for SRU to bionic.
