Bug description:
  Rationale: until recently, the only consumer of the linux-manta
  packages was the android package - although not through explicit
  build-depends, as the package was downloading linux-manta manually
  during package build. We removed support for building device bits for
  manta in the android package recently, so there is no official use for
  this package. We are also officially dropping support for manta in
  system-image. This ubuntu-touch device was unsupported with no one
  working on it since at least half a year.

  We would like to request the removal of this package to get some
  burden off the kernel team. Doesn't make sense for them to waste
  cycles with security fixes for a kernel that's not used in Ubuntu. The
  reverse-depends show no reverse dependencies.
