This patch fixes the issue wherein prelink verification by loader fails
when shared library soname is different from filename.

Method to verify the given issue:
1. Create shared library "libB.so" with same soname "libB.so"
2. Build a program that link to library "libB.so".
	#gcc test.c -o test -lB
3. Now replace the original "libB.so" with symlink, like below
	#ln -sf libA.so libB.so
	(libB.so -> libA.so)
4. When we prelink "test", library list section '.gnu.liblist' contains
   entries as below.
	0: libA.so        2014-12-02T04:28:40 0x95c929e5 0   0 //SONAME
5. A runtime, prelink verification faile due to mismatched dependency
   due to soname issue.
	expect libA.so, found /lib/libB.so in dependency order
	prelink checking: failed

The issue is prelink fills soname in gnu.liblist section but loader uses
filename for prelink verification during loading instead of soname.

So, now we are comparing soname of a library with .gnu.liblist section of
prelinked executable, after the original filename mismatch occurs.
