[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#748867: Fix/workaround for Google API key problem and crash

The attached patch to debian/rules restores the ability to sign-in to 
Chromium, by re-adding the Debian Google API keys that used to be included 
in older Chromium packaging debian/rules.

The patch also resolves the crash that occurred on sign-in with Chromium 
built against the system protobuf (the solution being, simply enough, not to 
use the system protobuf - this issue was explained further in Debian bug 

With these fixes applied and Chromium re-built, I can upgrade from Chromium 
37 to 38 without any need to delete ~/.config/chromium or any such hassle.

Hope this helps.
