ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py, debian/tests/system, tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Do not autoinstall the broadcom driver. The open driver should be a
      better solution now (LP: #1306928), as the binary driver prevents
      a number of systems from using the wireless card.
    - Autoinstall linux-firmware-nonfree. This will help now that we no
      longer autoinstall Broadcom's binary driver.
    - Fix the relevant tests now that linux-firmware-nonfree has replaced
  * gpu-manager.c, tests/gpu-manager.py:
    - Ignore CRT displays when using PRIME. This works around systems whose
      BIOS provides a ghost output (LP: #1296020).
    - Check that we don't remove xorg.confs on 1st boot (as per the
      previous SRU).
    - Try harder when loading bbswitch (LP: #1310023). If loading bbswitch
      fails try with or without the "skip_optimus_dsm=1" option. Also, make
      sure that we trim dmi resources or matching will give us false
    - Switch to intel/SNA for optimus systems (LP: #1326257).
    - Make sure to unload nvidia-uvm or nvidia won't be
    - Make sure to walk properly the /dev/dri dir. This
      prevents the program from stopping when, for example
      /dev/dri/card1 is available while /dev/dri/card0 is
