- Fix --setperms (regression introduced in 4.10.0)
- Fix double-free on %caps in spec (regression introduced in 4.11 alpha)

- Fix disk-space accounting wrt intermediate space requirement during
   transaction on update and forced replace
- Fix disk-space accounting wrt inodes (broken since forever)
