In fb7c311711c8851d0de1e40231150ad999ae9c2b/ghc:

Repsect the package name when checking for self-import

Fixes Trac #9997.

In doing this I tripped across the specialness of "this" in
PackageImports.  The magic constant (fsLit "this") is scattered across
the compiler and ought to be put in one place.  But where?
