[arch-projects] [namcap][PATCH] fhs: update valid and invalid paths

* Remove /var/lock form valid paths. It is already forbidden, so should not be valid.
* Empty most of /lib. We want to empty /lib over time. This explicitly allows the subdirs
  that would need a coordinated rebuild to empty, and disallows everything else.
* Prod people into emptying /{s,}bin. To the extent possible these dirs should be emptied
  and moved to /usr/bin. In particular we want to avoid new or third-party packages
  putting stuff here.
* Disallow installing in /srv. /srv is admin territory, similar to /home. No package should
  put stuff there.

This is updated to be up-to-date with the status of the current move of /lib to /usr/lib,
and squashed into one commit as suggested. Once /lib is a symlink to /usr/lib, we should
update this again, but even now this would be very useful to make sure people get warnings
in case they are about to put stuff back into /lib.
