SRU request (and request for inclusion to Natty)
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.
