Default Resend: rm_conffile() /etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945 on upgrades

Hi

Back in gutsy, linux-restricted-modules-common used to ship a
/etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945 conffile. In hardy, this conffile wasn't
shipped anymore, but wasn't removed on upgrades. (The modprobe.d file
served starting a binary only daemon but ipw3945 is superseded by
iwlwifi which doesn't require one.)

The two patches below start a new release in jaunty-lrm and add a
postinst snippet to remove this conffile if it wasn't modified, or
rename it out of the way if it was. You can also get the patches from:
git://kernel.ubuntu.com/lool/ubuntu/ubuntu-jaunty-lrm.git

I did a test build and installed the new
linux-restricted-modules-common which removed the conffile on one of my
systems.

Cheers,
