plugin system and kernel modules changes - requires possible SA action

Hi all,

as of now the plugin system is fully active and enacted throughout the 
kernel modules. This means that it is up to the SysAdmin to choose their
preferred bootloader and remove the others.

So, if you have both lilo and grub installed but only *use* grub, then 
please 'lrm lilo'. This will allow the plugin system to correctly find 
your proper bootloader and you will not be bothered with possible lilo
errors or vice versa.

It is possible to have both modules installed but I strongly advice to 
lrm all bootloaders except the one you use to boot your system. If you 
have proper non-conflicting lilo/grub bootloaders (e.g. chained), then 
you can safely ignore this message.

The benefit is that now you will no longer be asked whether you want to 
use 'grub' or 'lilo'. This system also allows us to enable other 
platforms bootloaders easily.
