Pepperflash plugin in wheezy fix

The pepperflashplugin-nonfree package in wheezy-backports is broken, as it downloads the flash plugin from the latest chrome release and installs it. The latest release links against libc6 2.14 which is not available in wheezy.

# Check your /var/cache/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/ for cached chrome releases.
# I found google-chrome-stable_35.0.1916.153-1_amd64.deb which I used.
# If you don't have the ar command, apt-get install binutils

$ ar x google-chrome-stable_35.0.1916.153-1_amd64.deb
$ tar --lzma --extract --verbose --file data.tar.lzma
$ sudo cp opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/ /usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/

# Restart chrome
