[bitbake-devel] [PATCH] providers.py: Fix PREFERRED_VERSION containing epochs

For some reason the code calls int() on the epoch component of any
PREFERRED_VERSION. Since this is compared against strings, the comparison
would always fail. This removes the stray cast and allows epochs
in preferred_version to work correctly.
