I've uploaded in core/updates_testing a new ldetect, using libkmod instead
of libmodprobe. I've also fixed several memleaks.
There you'll find a drakxtools rebuild for this new libldetect.

This result in:
- faster lspcidrake
- using quite less RAM ; eg on my test machine:
  o harddrake2 uses 106M of resident memory instead of 127
  o mcc utilise uses 47M of resident memory instead of 48M

Output of lspcidrake should be the same as before modulo for some ISA bridges.
Please report any significant change.

How to test:
  lspcidrake > /tmp/pci1
  urpmi.update 'Core Updates Testing'
  urpmi --media='Core Updates Testing' ldetect
  lspcidrake > /tmp/pci2
  diff -u /tmp/pci[12]

See you
