Patch to make %{major_version} macro defined from %{version}

Description of problem:
The epiphany spec file defines a %{major_version} macro to create and own the
extensions folders in /usr/lib*/epiphany/:
 mkdir -p
 ln -sf %{major_version}/plugins $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_libdir}/epiphany/plugins
 ln -sf %{major_version}/extensions

In F18/rawhide spec, %{major_version} is set to 3.5 whereas it should be 3.6 (as for
the current Epiphany major version in the repos).

This issue prevents the (future releases of) epiphany-extensions package to
work with epiphany 3.6 without dirty tricks (extensions would be installed in
%{_libdir}/epiphany/3.6/extensions/, with %{_libdir}/epiphany/3.6/ supposed to
be owned by epiphany). Moreover, the epiphany-extensions depends on the virtual Provides "epiphany(abi)", whose version is set too to %{major_version}.

To avoid such a problem occuring at each new major release of Epiphany (see RHBZ 808401 and 743433), here is provided a patch to make %{major_version} defined from %{version}. This would make automatic updates of Epiphany package easier.
