Default Properly detect conflicts with directory symlinks

This series of patches make pacman perform conflict checking with all directory
paths resovled. This means that inter-package conflicts such as /lib/foo and
/usr/lib/foo when /lib -> usr/lib are detected. Similarly, if a package moves
a file from /lib/foo to /usr/lib/foo when /lib -> usr/lib (i.e. the file is
effectively the same), this is no longer detected as a conflict with the

A big thanks to Andrew for fixing my initial attempt at the resolving of the
filelist and making my idea for efficiently storing paths that are unchanged
by resolving a reality.

Allan McRae (3):
Add resolved_path to alpm_filelist_t
Resolve file paths during inter-package conflict check
Avoid upgrade conflict with unchanged effective path

Andrew Gregory (2):
Add _alpm_filelist_resolve
_alpm_filelist_resolve: use original filenames where possible
