smart errata update details

I've rewritten the previous "errata flags" code,
into "update details". This now adds a separate
ErrataInfo object, instead of abusing the flags
like it did before for setting the errata type. (flags) (info)

As before, there are file parsers for yum's
"updateinfo.xml" and urpmi's "descriptions"
but there is no such parsable information for
Debian or Slackware packages (missing upstream).

A simple test command was added, to view it:
smart info --errata
Sample output attached for some random packages
from fedora/opensuse/mandriva update channels.


PS. It still sets the flags for compatibility,
     until the PackageKit backend is updated...
     But using smart "flag" for this information
     is fundamentally broken, as it is "config".
