Description of problem:
'dnf repoquery --whatprovides' and 'dnf provides' give different results, moreover the 'dnf provides' seems to take much longer time to complete, so it's probably doing different query. IIRC both yum commands worked the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf repoquery --whatprovides '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps'
2. dnf repoquery --whatprovides '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/*'
3. dnf provides '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/*'
3. list of packages
same results for 2 and 3
We'll fix this
