SRU Justification


linux-image-azure-5.15 currently has a dependency on linux-modules-azure-5.15.
Similarly, linux-modules-azure-5.15 depends on linux-image-azure-515. This
circular dependency is unnecessary since the meta packages quite effectively
manage those relationships. Furthermore, this dependency breaks the construction
of FDE-5.15 packages by pulling in unwanted dependencies during FDE image creation.

[Where things could go wrong]

Installations where this dependency is assumed could stop working. This is unlikely
since all cloud images start from correctly installed meta packages. This circular
dependency is also new with 5.15 packages.
