[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] %exclude should not permit files to bypass check-files and be omitted from all packages built from spec (#994)

Again: how is this an improvement? I have seen many specfiles deliberately using `%exclude` in the way that you are now prohibiting. This is an incompatible change making packaging unnecessarily harder. And Miro @hroncok even posted a case where the obvious fix (using `rm` instead) won't work because the files are needed in `%check`.
