[Bug 242123] rpm out of bash completion list

bash itself has only basic completion features. It does only a normal
completion of filenames without any context sensitiveness.
bash-completion does completion based on context. Since this needs more
information it might slow down some shell features, so it is not installed by
default. Also it might not be desired in all cases.

So bash (without bash-completion) will complete even rpm -hiv selecting from
all files. bash-completion will only select from *.rpm. This is not going to
change and AFAIK it has never been any other way.
All I can do is applying the patch to bash-completion.
