[PATCH] add MODULE_ALIAS to load ipmi_devintf with ipmi_si

From: Scott James Remnant
Date: Tue Oct 21 2008 - 11:08:27 EST

The ipmi_devintf module contains the userspace interface for IPMI
devices, yet will not be loaded automatically with a system
interface handler driver.

Add a MODULE_ALIAS for the "platform:ipmi_si" MODALIAS exported by
the ipmi_si driver, so that userspace knows of the recommendation.
