Downloaded binaries for bionic-{updates,proposed} and compared. These
contain the same files other than the movement of the ABI information
into the new linux-buildinfo files.

Bug description:
  We have an increasing amount of ABI information which is currently
  exposed via the primary binary packages.  Little to none of this is
  relevant to the end-user and does not deserve to use up space on their
  system.  Also the kernel developer who needs to update this data does
  not want to downloads 10s of Megabytes of binary packages to extract
  this information.  Pull it all out and generate all data that would
  require the actual binaries at kernel build time, package all of this
  information into a new linux-buildinfo package for consumption.  This
  package is not installed by default.
