In FS#43434, Downloads which fail and are restarted on a different server will resume and may display a negative download speed. The payload's progress in libalpm was not properly reset which ultimately caused terminal noise because the line width calculation assumes positive download speeds.
This patch fixes the incomplete reset of the payload by mimicing what be_sync.c:alpm_db_update() does over in sync.c:download_single_file(). The new dload.c:_alpm_dload_payload_reset_for_retry() extends beyond the current behavior by updating initial_size and prevprogress for this case. This makes pacman reset the progress properly in the next invocation of the callback and display positive download speeds.
