cros-host-fonts: bind-mount host fonts in /usr/share/fonts

Host fonts are mounted at the non-standard location /mnt/chromeos/fonts
and made available with fontconfig. There are at least two cases of
applications not working with this location due to sandboxing: Firefox
as well as Flatpak applications.

A bind mount is used rather than a symbolic link to avoid potential
problems with file name canonicalisation.

TEST=Install cros-host-fonts=0.2, run Firefox or Flatpak apps and verify
     that host fonts work.

These are the guest packages for setting up a container to integrate with Chrome OS. This includes build scripts that are run in Google's internal continuous integration service.


The guest packages can be built with Bazel.

bazel build //cros-debs:debs


promote\ MILESTONE and promote\ MILESTONE in scripts are used to promote containers from staging to live. NOTE: Whatever is the latest in staging is what gets promoted to live so make sure it's what was tested.
