[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RFE: subdirectory handling in %autosetup (#1075)

In our package (nss), the release tarballs contain an extra directory hierarchy `nss-X.XX/nss`, while the upstream repo doesn't have it. So we need to use `pushd nss` and `popd` to apply patches from upstream.  This practice doesn't work well with `%autosetup`, and even if we split the call to `%setup` and `%autopatch`, SCMs other than quilt get confused.

It would be nice if there is a native way to support subdirectory inside tarballs.
