detect change in rpm epoch, name, version, release

ITIL compliance requires that _every_ package
change is detectable.

This fix ensures etckeeper properly reports any
change in rpm manifest, including epoch and release.
It uses an RPM query-format string that yields
reproducible results.

By example, assume you update a package that
differs only in the release number.

Before fix, etckeeper logs:
    committing changes in /etc after yum run

    Package changes:
