[erlang-bugs] The latest Emacs from CVS doesn't like the backuotes from erlang.el

This fix just expands the backquote/unquote forms by hand. I have here a
better fix (I think) which uses the "new" backquote style. This has been
around a long while, and is compatible with Common Lisp backquote. We'll see
if it makes it through, I have also included the file.

Compiling erlang.el with Emacs 22.1 also gives some obsolete functions, but
they seem to be for this version of Emacs.
