hal hard codes us layout

Now that Xorg uses HAL for keyboard detection, it is vital that the information
is actually correct. Unfortunately, HAL hard codes the "us" layout in one of its
.fdi files. It needs to get a lot more clever than this.
Preferably, it checks /etc/sysconfig/keyboard.
Could someone have a look at this? It's a bit annoying to have the keyboard
layout reset to american every time there's a hal update.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Are you still running Fedora 9, or have you upgraded to 10 or Rawhide? In
either case, can you let us know whether the issue is still happening, and give
the current version of the HAL packages you're using?

I've upgraded, and it seems to be working with the current hal.
