This patch allows to "whitelist" the hash checksum for certain files (i.e.turn off the content verification, similar to what can be done for file attributes). Useful in case you'd like to use a package manager such as RPM for the hashes, but already know that the file content has been changed on disk.
Also covers the case where bi-arch RPMs have been installed that both claim the same file, some RPM versions (Centos4 etc al) will always report a verification error in this case.. this affects e.g. "curl".
