Patch to restore symlinks.

Description of problem:
Symlinks of plugins from 

%{_libdir}/%{name}/plugins/openvpn-plugin-$plugin.so to
{_libdir}/%{name}/plugin/lib/openvpn-$plugin.so

should be restored to maintain compatibility with current configurations on
RHEL 6 systems where plugins are referenced using absolute paths.

Currently, after a package update, OpenVPN will continue running until next service restart and then abort.

The breaking change was made in https://src.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/openvpn.git/commit/?h=el6&id=8283c7e978e4bcd47081ffd6bb8802bfae8d753a

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Openvpn 2.4.1-3

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. In an OpenVPN configuration, specify:

plugin /usr/lib64/openvpn/plugin/lib/openvpn-auth-pam.so openvpn

and launch OpenVPN with any 2.3 release.

2. Upgrade to 2.4

3. Attempt to restart OpenVPN.

Actual results:
Apr 21 14:06:16 centos6 openvpn[6492]: PLUGIN_INIT: could not load plugin shared object /usr/lib64/openvpn/plugin/lib/openvpn-auth-pam.so: /usr/li
b64/openvpn/plugin/lib/openvpn-auth-pam.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory: No such file or directory (errno=2)

Expected results:
Server instance restarts successfully.

Additional info:
Marking as urgent severity as upgrades can unexpectedly break systems.
