The patch does much more than drop a couple of lines:

... NAK, distros where GNU_HASH is not supported are still widely
deployed (RHEL/Centos <= 5 and no doubt Suse Enterprise versions of that
era). I guess we could add a cli-switch to allow easily disabling it,
but then repository metadata is better trimmed and filtered in
createrepo (it already does this for rpmlib() dependencies etc)
