ADT sets up the test environment by installing the image and modules-extra
package via the virtual provides
'kernel-testing--linux-<derivative>--full--preferred' and
'kernel-testing--linux-<derivative>--modules-extra--preferred'. If those are not
available, it falls back to using the real meta names as
'linux-image-<derivative>' and 'linux-modules-extra-<derivative>'.

The 5.4 cloud kernels in Focal are not providing the virtual packages for
'kernel-testing--linux-<derivative>--modules-extra--preferred'. When the tests
falls back to 'linux-modules-extra-<derivative>', the new 5.8 cloud kernels are
pulled for the tests as they are now the default sources.

The oracle kernels in focal don't need fixing as they do not produce a
linux-modules-extra-* package.

ADT log:

The meta packages need to be fixed to provide the necessary virtual packages for

Although the 5.8 kernels don't need this fix, I'm including it for

[Where problems could occur]
Adding new virtual meta packages could clash with existing names provided by
other sources. However, if they existed ADT would have pulled them.
