kalu-updater: environment variables were unset, which could cause issues on some post_{install,upgrade} scripts, fixed

The sysupgrade is ran from kalu-dbus, which is automatically started through DBus. When starting something, DBus does clear all environment variables, which could cause problems is some scripts (e.g. mkinitcpio with autodetect hook, and the lack of a PATH defined).
This is fixed by using a bash script to source /etc/profile (and therefore restore a proper environment) before launching kalu-dbus (See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=136784)
