  • increase threshold for uid/gid reservations to 200 (#515667)

without this, other packages which dynamically allocate system uid/gids
can stomp on qemu's allocated uid/gid of 107

qemu is the first one to get allocated in the 100-200 range, that's why
this came about

also, in f11 we allocated ids downwards from 499, so we shouldn't see
any gid clashes on upgrades. Fingers crossed

Update is tested by me, seems fine

This needs a pretty huge flag in the release notes, FWIW. It's changing 15-year old RH behavior.
