Customize the Ubuntu LEB images to provide a visual Linaro identity

Registered by Ricardo Salveti on 2011-11-21

Currently there's no easy way for our users to easily see that they are running an Ubuntu LEB image instead of the Ubuntu vanilla. We should create and enable a Linaro visual identity since the boot, by customizing plymouth and the default background.
