  [Zesty] d-i: replace msm_emac with qcom_emac

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Zesty:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  We landed a patch to support msm_emac module in initrd for amberwing 
platforms. But the upstream driver has since been renamed to qcom_emac. This 
module is needed in d-i's initrd so that these nics can be used to d-i install 
the system. The driver already exists in the zesty kernel under 

  Revert commit 14893d91c9c391f8a4c2668b96ffe60aa728ad23 and add
  qcom_emac to initrd, and change the module name to qcom_emac.

  [Test Case]
  D-I install zesty on amberwing platform and notice that DI does not recognize 
the onboard two port nic.

  [Regression Potential]
  At present this driver applies only to amberwing systems, any regression will 
be isolated to amberwing platforms. The over all risk of regression is low.
