Those were created by me while trying to fix it. I had originnally
copied a bunch of cp commands in the terminal to automate the restore
but some of them failed. After seeing that, I put them in a script and
it went fine.  I cleaned that up and the packages that were removed by
error are restored.

I don't know what happened with the cleanup script. All packages
coming alphabetically after laptop-mode-tools were gone. Maybe a seg
fault caused it.
