[patch] content types and permissions not populated unless model contains inner Admin class

I've discovered that if your model doesn't have and inner Admin class defined then unless you call ContentType.objects.get_for_model() somewhere in your own code, the content type for that model is never created.

Same goes for permissions. django/contrib/auth/ doesn't create perms unless the model has Admin defined.

I found this out when I finally got around to implementing my own views for add/change/delete of a model and when I removed the inner Admin class because I no longer needed it, my views broke after a fresh install because neither perms or content types were being set up.

The following patch fixes this.
