[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Problem with --signfiles for files that are hardlinked together (#333)

I can see how hardlinks could be a problem (because they *are* quite different from everything else) but... you're saying the reason IMA appraisal fails is that the file was changed after its creation, right? And not for example because the file has a number of hardlinks already?

Anyway, the way rpm does hardlinks right now is problematic in more ways than just this one and changing it to behave more sensibly (create the file with the content first like any other file, and only then create the hardlinks) will fix this too. So this is just all the more reason to change it...
