Long overdue: I took the work you already did and made some small
changes to update the packaging.

Patch 1 marks the stage1, stage2 .bin files as not executable, since
they are data files rather than files to be executed on the host
machine.  Noticed by Lintian.

Patch 2 fixes get-orig-source.sh and changelog.upstream.awk to take
into account that the package is not just usbboot any more.  I would
like to see each module treated as its own project with its own git
repository since they can be built independently, but for now, let’s
just do this.

Patches 3-5 clean up .gitignore files, which fixes clean.sh.  This
means we can re-enable the clean.sh call, and the clean target works

Patch 6 updates debian/changelog to mention your changes.

Now, time for some testing. :)
