v2 - dropped some device configs that don't make sense on a cloud.

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1935052


v4l2loopback-dkms cannot be installed because CONFIG_MEDIA_CAMERA_SUPPORT is disabled.
Amazon would like this feature enabled. It is already enabled in the Groovy and Hirsute AWS kernels.

[Test Plan]

sudo apt-get install v4l2loopback-dkms

[Where problems could occur]

Enabling ioctl functionality in the kernel could expose security vulnerabilities.

[Other Info]
