Description of problem:

Removing packages (systems->system->software->packages->remove):

If there are multiple instances of a package installed on a client, selecting to
remove an individual package results in all instances (e.g. i386 & x86_64) being
removed from the client. In this scenario, although a package associated with a
specific architecture is chosen from the UI, the package architecture is not
communicated to the client.

From initial analysis, impact to UI and backend are anticipated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select Systems
2. select an x86_64 system
3. select Software -> Packages -> Remove
4. schedule the removal of an i386 package (e.g. libjpeg)
5. perform rhn_check -vvv on the client at the appropriate time

Actual results:
client removes all instances of the package (e.g. libjpeg i386 & x86_64)

Expected results:
client removes only the version of the package requested/scheduled (e.g. libjpeg

UI changes finished. Updated the action query to persist the architecture.
