Now that the pcmcia initscript is dead, we have to preload the PCMCIA controller module using another way.

Previously, I wrote an udev rule to load yenta-socket at coldplug for devices supporting it, but other controllers were not handled.

Since /etc/rc.modules now also loads modules from /etc/modprobe.preload.d/, I've made the harddrake::autoconf module drop a pcmcia file there, that contains the name of the PCMCIA controler module.

This is now used in the installer and harddrake.

This also made me notice the yenta-socket preload rule was broken in the pcmciautils package, it lead to general PCI hotplugging /o\
