Debian 7.2 and OpenCPI

A client of ours using OpenCPI had selected the Debian flavor of Linux for their work. That's fine. Certainly in the FPGA space, and for that matter, across all processor technologies, we have tried not to dictate any particular Linux. That said, the developers had added support for RedHat, CentOS, and MacOS from the ancient times. More recently Ubuntu was added into the mix. And just yesterday, with this commit, we dealt with Debian. It's interesting seeing the subtle, and not-so-subtle, differences across a dozen different Linux distributions.
