Apart from the parsePreamble.c hunk not applying (patch apparently 
against 4.9.x) and two little thinkos wrt rpm typedef braindamage 
(Header is already a pointer so you need "Header h", not "Header *h" 
typically), yes this is fine by me.

Applied (with the above issues fixed) and pushed to the master branch 
now. I suppose it looks safe enough to go into 4.10 as well as despite 
adding a big pile of strange corner-case rpmvercmp() tests I'm not 
seeing any regressions.
