Some configure files and scripts installed by rpms may be over written when updating related packages.
For example, if I install base-files-3.0.14-r74.2.qemux86_64.rpm, the file /etc/issue will be substituted by a new file. 
This is not what we want for our configure may be lost after updating.

The affected files is in the attached file.

Steps to Reproduce

1. confiure with wrl5.0.1
2. make fs and boot the target
3. copy base-files-3.0.14-r74.2.qemux86_64.rpm which is under "build/base-files-3.0.14-r74.2/deploy-rpms/qemux86_64/" to the target
4. change the file /etc/issue(you can add string to the file)
5. rpm -ivh base-files-3.0.14-r74.2.qemux86_64.rpm --nodeps --force
6. check if the file /etc/issue is changed
