Bug #13932: [PATCH] Extension libraries take precedence in checks of later Kernel.#require calls for features without file extensions
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13932

* Author: akihikodaki (Akihiko Odaki)

* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.5.0dev (2017-09-23 trunk 60002) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
Extension libraries take precedence in checks of later `Kernel.#require` calls for features without file extensions. That behavior is inconsistent with the first call, and can cause problems.

For instance, feature `openssl` has `openssl.rb` and `openssl.so`, but it assumes `openssl.rb` will always be loaded when it gets required. That assumption works for the first call of `Kernel.#require`, but for the later calls, `require` assumes `openssl.so` is being required and checks if the file is valid for the requirement.

Usually that is not so problematic since it just check if `openssl.so`, which is already required by `openssl.rb`, is required or not. However, if there is a new alternative `openssl.rb` in `$:`, the file will be loaded and conflict with the feature already loaded.
The below is a code example.

~~~Ruby
p $:.include? '/usr/lib/ruby/2.4.0' # true
p $:.include? '/home/aki/mastodon/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.4.0/gems/openssl-2.0.5/lib' # false

p $".include? '/usr/lib/ruby/2.4.0/openssl/openssl.rb' # false
p $".include? '/home/aki/mastodon/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.4.0/gems/openssl-2.0.5/lib/openssl.rb' # false

require 'openssl'

p $".include? '/usr/lib/ruby/2.4.0/openssl/openssl.rb' # true
p $".include? '/home/aki/mastodon/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.4.0/gems/openssl-2.0.5/lib/openssl.rb' # false

$:.unshift '/home/aki/mastodon/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.4.0/gems/openssl-2.0.5/lib'
require 'openssl'

p $".include? '/home/aki/mastodon/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.4.0/gems/openssl-2.0.5/lib/openssl.rb' # true (unexpected)
~~~
