Import the upstream alx (Qualcomm Atheros) Ethernet driver into
ubuntu/alx/.

This import is from Adrian Chadd's alx repo on github:
http://github.com/erikarn/alx
(Adrian is taking care of alx while Luis is on holiday).

Testing info:

I have performed basic smoke-testing of this driver in Quantal (and
Raring, where it has only just landed).

We might wish to let the driver bake in Raring for a short while before
admitting into Quantal.

I confirmed there is no PCI ID overlap with atl1c, so there should be
little chance for regression.

I'd like to see some indication of testing either in this email or in
the bug that is linked. Looking at the bug, there appears to be a fair
number of folks with affected systems that could do some testing.

With that said, getting it into -proposed will help with additional
testing.
