Rework the way drivers are managed.

Registered by Carl Richell on 2007-05-29

The way systems and their drivers are handled now isn't very good. It requires a file with around 2000 lines of if; then; else statements, and should be reworked to be simpler and more flexible. It's also very cumbersome to add new systems/Ubuntu releases to the driver, so that should be taken into consideration.

======
Original Title: Automate adding new systems to the driver
Original Summary: During development of a new product it would be nice to automate adding the system to the driver with its appropriate needs. This may require a separate tool that captures data from user input - i.e. system identification info, supported Ubuntu releases, necessary drivers, restore info.
