  Remove Conflicts statements from compat-wireless meta packages

Bug description:
  SRU Justification

  Examining the Lucid and Maverick compat-wireless LBM meta packages it
  appears the 'Conflicts:' statements in each of the debian/control.d
  flavours is unnecessary.  The LBM packages themselves already have the
  appropriate 'Conflicts:' statements. Furthermore, they are coded in
  only one location in each of the LBM packages (debian/control.d
  /flavour-control.stub) which is  much simpler to track and update vs 6
  or 8 separate files in each of the meta package flavour files.

  Impact:  For Maverick there is zero impact as the 'Conflicts:'
  statements were already commented out.  The patch for Maverick just
  removed the commented out statements.  For Lucid it seems the package
  resolver will do the right thing given each compat-wireless-2.6.3X
  package has correct 'Conflicts"' statements in its dependencies, thus
  there should be no impact.

  Test Case: Only valid for Lucid, since Maverick only has the 2.6.36
  compat-wireless package.  On Lucid, test installing the LBM compat-
  wireless meta packages and confirm multiple versions of the compat-
  wireless package are not installable at the same time.
