With the latest upload, Debian has dropped all support for consolekit on
Linux architectures:

consolekit (0.4.6-6.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * Mark packages as kfreebsd-any hurd-any. On Linux, the consolekit package
    is actively harmful and should no longer be installed. See #888892

The logical next step is to blacklist consolekit in Ubuntu and remove it
from the archive for bionic.

However, lxdm has a dependency on libck-connector0, so we can't remove
it without breaking this package.

I am therefore uploading it to drop the dependency.

Bug description:
  consolekit has been dead upstream for a long time. Ubuntu moved to
  logind in saucy (13.10), and we don't support consolekit any more.
  There are a few packages which still depend on it, most notably
  openssh, lxdm, and lxsession{,-logout}. For Ubuntu 16.04 we really
  should get rid of CK.
