Default Dell All-In-One: Remove need for Dell module alias

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

SRU request (and request for inclusion to Natty)

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/718775

Impact: Dell All-In-One driver was using an old workaround to load the
module based on a Dell module alias. Since the wmi sysfs interface now
supports WMI GUID module aliases we should be using this instead.

Fix: Remove Dell dmi module alias since WMI GUID module alias works.

Testcase: With the fix, the driver will only load for hardware with
matching WMI GUIDs.

Note: The original driver + this small fix was sent for upstream inclusion today.
