mailconf: sendmail.cf generation strategy

The strategy to generate this file was changed. Until now, Linuxconf was proposing the update the sendmail.cf file if it was not matching the proposed configuration. this was handy for those relying only on Linuxconf for sendmail configuration, but not so fun for the other: They had no option other than not using mailconf at all.

The new strategy is slightly changed: If sendmail.cf was generated by Linuxconf, then the previous strategy apply. If it was not (or was modified, even just a byte), then Linuxconf won't take about it. The only way to get a new sendmail.cf from Linuxconf will be interactive when changing configuration in mailconf itself.

mailconf: supports /etc/mail/sendmail.cw

Until now, Linuxconf was ignoring that file (old mistake). It now does and will silently migrate old setting to that file. If you edit you sendmail basic configuration and you have set domain aliases there, Linuxconf will remove the settings from /etc/conf.linuxconf and write /etc/mail/sendmail.cw (and will regenerate a sendmail.cf that uses it).
