[pacman-dev] INFRQ_* confusion

The constants defined in db.h are not usual: First, it seems logical,
that NONE==0x0, ALL=0xFF. However you may forget about this, like
be_files.c (row 222):
"if(info->infolevel & inforeq) {
	/* already loaded this info, do nothing */
As I see, the author thinks of inforeq as exactly one bit is set to 1.
However, if inforeq=0xFF and infolevel!=0, this is a bug. And if
inforeq=0, this condition is never true.
