PATCH: allow %package directive in %included kickstart files

Description of problem:
Currently, package/group/exclude lists are overwritten at the end of
readKickstart. If %package lives in a %include'd file, all package info from the
included file gets lost when the main call to readKickstart exits the main loop.
The patch changes the behavior so that readKickstart appends
package/group/exclude bits instead of assigning the current call's lists to the
class attributes. This way no data gets lost, at least for packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put entire %package directive in a file
2. include that file from a ks.cfg using %include
Actual Results: the %package section's contents were overwritten with the empty
package, group, exclude lists from the top level call.
Expected Results: info from %package directives in *both* files should be preserved
there are obviously issues if users supply 2 or more conflicting sets of package
selection info, but that's unavoidable IMHO. ordering of processing is
predictable, so they'll just have to pay attention.
