BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1836706

To be consistent across derivatives and in order to allow
out of tree modules to properly compile and giving a quick
work-around to people needing additional modules by default,
we re-enable shipping linux-modules-extra.

This adds a linux-modules-extra-aws meta package which allows
keeping it in sync with the kernel.
