So, if all these update notification things check a single semaphore
file, say "/var/lib/update-notifier/no-hwe-oel-warning", then the OEM
people can drop that flag in place on a forced update, to avoid their
users being notified of stack upgrades before they've validated the
upgrade path.

Bug description:
  We need to have some mechanism to allow us to record that you have an
  EOL kernel installed which will no longer receive updates.

  For example for the kernel when a kernel is going EOL the last upload
  should include an appropriate file:

      /var/lib/update-notifier/kernel-eol

  We need to coordinate this with the notifier itself to ensure it is
  displayed.
