New securityonion-et-rules package

I've updated our securityonion-et-rules package in preparation for our upcoming 12.04.5 ISO image.  This is a static set of free NIDS rules from Emerging Threats that is only used if you have LOCAL_NIDS_RULE_TUNING=yes in /etc/nsm/securityonion.conf (most users should have LOCAL_NIDS_RULE_TUNING=no which causes PulledPork to download updated rules from the Internet).

This package has been tested by the following (thanks!):
