This patch fixes an extramely rare race condition in creation of rpmdb
temporary directory. The "rpmdb-more-verbose-error-logging" patch is
still left in place, just for the case.

+rpmdb: prevent race in tmpdir creation
+
+If two (or more) instances of rpm are running at the same time they may
+be trying to create the same (base-)temporary directory at the same time
+which causes the other mkdir to fail with EEXIST. This patch prevents a
+failure caused by this race by ignoring EEXIST error on directory
+creation.
