  Missing "idevicerestore" & "libirecovery" from libimobiledevice-utils

Bug description:
  Currently all of the other important utilities are included for
  installation on Ubuntu. However currently though a Ubuntu Linux user,
  is unable to perform an iOS device restore. In order to do so
  currently the user needs to have some way of running an up to date
  iTunes software with a usb connection to the iPhone, iPad or iPod

  Which is quite a hassle to go through in order to completely reload
  the device's iOS software. It would be much better if a binary
  compiled version of the software (idevicerestore and libirecovery)
  could be included in the utilities package.

  It would allow the Ubuntu user to be able to quickly and easily
  perform software update or device restore functions. Without the need
  for a virtual machine running a compatible version of Windows and
  iTunes etc. While also saving them from having to run Wine, its
  dependencies, iTunes and its own software requirements.

  All the would need is what is required to install idevicerestore and
  run its actions (the appropriate iOS release download image file).

  The code for idevice restore is available here
  (https://cgit.sukimashita.com/idevicerestore.git/) and the library
  from here (https://cgit.sukimashita.com/libirecovery.git/).

  Running Ubuntu 16.04.3
  libimobiledevice-utils 1.2.0+dfsg-3~ubuntu0.2 installed
