RPMng driver reads in file when verifying file size

Passing md5 alone in ticket #426 was not enough to really create a quick mode. The verification was still very slow and I checked that access time was modified on the packages' files.

After some testing I found that this was due to the file size verification and most probably due to the prelinking stuff.

But calling rpm -V --nomd5 works w/o accessing the file contents, so it must be possible to verify the filesize w/o piping the file into the (un)prelinking code. Maybe it is just a constant offset or something similar that can easily be computed.

It looks like rpm is cheating, e.g. it does not read in the file, but it would have to - using rpm -V --nomd5 yields wrong sizes for the files.

bcfg2's behaviour is therefore correcter. One could argue that the proper behaviour would be to copy rpm and its bugs, but I don't think that makes really sense here.

closing as invalid, since this is not a bug of bcfg2.
