Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: When adding the gobi loader and its udev rule to the wwan package (to support certain wwan cards) it was not taken into account that these files are installed into common directories and by that are not unique to the package. This causes problems when trying to upgrade the package to a newer kernel ABI as packages are considered different but still provide the same files. Also this would not allow to install multiple flavors in parallel.

Fix: For the packaging the udev rules file is modified to check for the current kernel version and run a <abi>-<flavor> postfixed version of the gobi_loader. And both the rules file and the loader are renamed to be <abi>-<flavor> postfixed.

Testcase: Installing two flavors of the wwan package or upgrade between abi version currently fails.
