We have this situation in cases were parts of the transaction are
refused (e.g. in a hashsum mismatch) and rerun the update (e.g. in the
hope that we get a mirror which is synced this time).
Previously we would ask the server with an if-range and in the best case
recieve a 416 in response (less featureful server might end up giving us
the entire file again or we get the wrong file this time giving us a
hashsum mismatch…), which is a waste of time if we know already by
checking the hashsums that we got the complete and correct file.
