Make yum-updatesd use sendmail (rh#397711)

Almost every other program sends reports by calling /usr/bin/sendmail to the
address "root". yum-updatesd, however, requires a SMTP server to submit its
mail, something that usually also requires domain-decorated names.

This patch allows yum-updatesd to submit mail reports using /usr/bin/sendmail
like any other system monitoring program. The old code path is still there and
is controlled by the value "use_sendmail" in the configuration.
