Changes for Build #409
[Pavel Milanes (CO7WT) <pavelmc at gmail.com>] [PATCH][Feature] Add the know clones of the btech with the new alias feature, fixes #3749
This patch explicitly adds the following Btech clones to the UI:
* Jetstream JT2705M
* Juentai JT-6188 Mini
* Juentai JT-6188 Plus
* Sainsonic GT-890
This radios do show properly now in the download/upload dialog as vendor/model, this will ease the handling of clones in the user side.
But it has a catch and the users will be notified on the chirp_user list: when you opens a saved image of a clone it will show in Chirp as the real radio, not the clone.

[Dan Smith <dsmith at danplanet.com>] Add radio alias support
This introduces a small class called Alias which defines the identifying
attributes of a radio model. Radio inherits from that, and also has a
list of ALIASES that can be zero or more of those classes. When we
construct the clone box where a user chooses a model, show them all the
models, including aliases.
[Pavel Milanes (CO7WT) <pavelmc at gmail.com>] [PATCH][KT-8900R] Fix the second ID to cope with a new variant, fixes #3547
The latest added variant has the second ID without the leading spaces, instead it's filled with '123456'
We removed the leading spaces as the ID is the same of the others but they changed the leding spaces.
[Nathan Crapo <nathan at n4nc3o.com>] Make radio model identification for TH-7800 and TH-9800 more specific so they don't interfere with each other, or completely different radios. The TH-7800 was ahead of the TH-9800 in the list of Radios to identify against, so Chirp would use it for TH-7800 _and_ TH-9800 radios. This patch makes both TH-7800 and TH-9800 drivers check their model more carefully so order of Radios Classes doesn't matter. It's more robust that way.
TH-7800 seems to use "TH9800" for a model string too. Check for a "TH9800" _or_ "TH7800" string in the th7800.py driver in case TYT doesn't consistently set the model or in case owners change their model name.
