info.py patch 

This patch changes the vendor and build host check so that there are only done on
modules that do not come from the kernel RPM.    The logic is that if a module is found in /proc/modules that does not come from the kernel RPM, the following tests are performed:

- if the OS being certified is RHEL 4, it fails
- otherwise, the ABI whitelist is checked.  If the module does not conform, it fails
- otherwise, the vendor and build host are checked.  If these tests indicate the module was not built be Red Hat, it fails.
