GIT obsolete git-p4 in RPM spec file.

HPA noticed that yum does not like the newer git RPM set; it turns out
that we do not ship git-p4 anymore but existing installations do not
realize the package is gone if we do not tell anything about it.

David Kastrup suggests using Obsoletes in the spec file of the new
RPM to replace the old package, so here is a try.
