[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Fail to check signature (#270)

Thanks for identifying the specific checkin.

RPM4 has changed the definition of what is called an "immutable region" in a signature header.

An "immutable region" is identified with an index/data length as well as a trailer which duplicates
the same information. The test for an exact_match in the commit has altered the definition
of an "immutable region" and appears to have introduced an incompatibility.

If you are going to handle Yocto packages built by RPM5 using RPM4 sanely, your best bet is to back out that specific "exact_match" change. You will be no worse off than you were before, the test is rather arcane and anal retentive.
