- FC6 rebuild.

- Rename init script to i8k since we don't only enable buttons.
- Re-enable init script by default since all it does is load the i8k module.
- Enable restart when upgrading from old packages (i8kbuttons -> i8k).
- Have service only load i8k module by default (the typical for the most
  recent Dell laptops like the Latitude Dx10 and Dx20), and leave it up to
  the user to enable the special buttons daemon (only useful on older laptops).
- Add sysconfig file for users to enable i8kbuttons (only) if needed.
* Thu Jun 1 18:00:00 2006 Matthias Saou <> 1.25-9
- Disable the i8kbuttons init script by default since it is no longer needed
  on recent Dell laptops (multimedia keys are "normal" keys), although.
