[Bug 1444179] Re: add hid drivers to virtual kernel


Today I grabbed the 15.04 server daily from 4/16. I installed linux-
virtual, linux-tools-virtual, and linux-cloud-tools-virtual and after
booting verified that hid_hyperv and hyperv_fb were present. I will
update the documentation on TechNet to ensure users know to install
these packages on new VMs. I am assuming that user of the certified
image on Azure will not require this manual step because they are not
going to grab the ISO to install a VM.
