Patch to implement behavior

Description of problem: yum commands somewhat regularly block on PackageKit operations.  Example:

Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit...
  The other application is: PackageKit

The upstream yum plugin has added a hook to avoid unnecessary waiting on PackageKit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):PackageKit-0.5.8-21.el6

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait for PackageKit to start some background operation
2. try and run a yum command
3. wait until the non-interactive background operation finishes before you can start the command you want.

Actual results:
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit...
  The other application is: PackageKit
waiting for a while

Expected results:
interactive command takes precidence

Additional info:
A patch implementing the upstream fix for this behavior is attached.
