[Rpm-maint] Attention: RPM 4.10.3 and 4.11.0 temporarily pulled back

A supposed install-regression fix from yesterday turned out to be far
worse than the disease it was meant to cure: it eats rpmdb's for
breakfast at least when its packaged as %ghost %config's as it is in
Fedora, RHEL and derivates.
Rpm 4.11.0 and current git master branch WILL erase those %ghost
%config's on upgrades, do stay away from those. Rpm 4.10.3 doesn't seem
to do so despite having the same exact fix, but as a precautionary
measure I've pulled both versions from rpm.org downloads until the issue
is better understood.
Apologies for the mess, my best guess is that I got mixed between
testing on different branches and never actually tested the git
master/4.11.x version on itself. On the positive side, this embarrasment
ought to be sufficient motivation for creating a few test-cases for
%ghost %config behavior...
