#15068 new bug

[packagefs] Cannot handle package activations with identical names

If you try to update or activate a package with an identical name (including revision) to an installed package, this occurs:

[system] Applying changes ...
*** failed to commit transaction: Failed to change the package activation in packagefs: Name in use

That's because of this code in packagefs.

Probably solving the TODO about looking packages up by node_ref rather than name would fix this.
