Uppercase checksums are not accepted by archive.extracted


Use archive.extracted with any tarball and with an uppercase source_hash. I tested with MD5.

Steps to Reproduce Issue

 Comment: Specified md5 checksum for /var/cache/salt/minion/files/dev/_repos_dist_release_kafka_0.10.1.1_kafka_2.11- (C32C75FF9B23CD6B64717F9EB5B4EB87) does not match actual checksum (c32c75ff9b23cd6b64717f9eb5b4eb87)

It would be easy to just pass in the lower version of the string, but I have marked it as a bug and low hanging fruit for someone to take care of.

It looks like this comparison is actually inside of the salt.modules.file execution module.

Yes, that's what I did to not be blocked.

And yes, it is a bug, because any hexadecimal number is case insensitive.
