Yeah -Qu is still a little funky.

I left the requirement on Usage = Search after every one disagreed with
my patch  to change it. Although I would prefer it if Search had no
bearing on this.
So with this patch, Search is needed for a package to be listed and
Upgrade is needed for [ignore] to not be added.

Why not just remove the Usage check all together? You need
alpm_sync_newversion to find the packages then later we do the Usage =
Upgrade check to add [ignored] to the end of the line.
Unless you want the packages to not show up at all? That's exactly what
the previous patch  did.
