We had all 3 versions and the current patch works as follows:
You add something like "provides=(foo bar libfoo.so)" to the PKGBUILD.
The function searches all provides in the whole pkgdir and filters that
list using your provides array. It then removes your entries
(versionless) and adds those it found (with version).
