Could anaconda not be smart enough to pull this in to only Dell and HP 
systems? Is there a reason all users need a new package for only a 
handful of hardware that can use it?

Not that I am attempting to downplay your work, I just wish to 
understand why all my systems keep getting Dell packages (yum plugin) 
when I don't own any Dell systems.
