    ubik: update ubik_dbVersion during SDISK_SendFile
    The ubik_dbVersion global represents the sync site's database version
    and it is mostly used by the remote sites for sanity checks. Currently,
    this global is updated when database changes are made on the sync site
    (SDISK_Commit or SDISK_SetVersion), as well as every time we vote "yes"
    for the sync-site in a beacon reply. Unfortunately, ubik_dbVersion is
    not updated when a copy of the sync site's database is received via
    DISK_SendFile, and it won't get updated until our next "yes" vote.
    During this window, the current database version will not match
    ubik_dbVersion. As a result, any write transaction during this time
    frame will fail on the remote site in question.
    To fix this problem, do not wait for the next beacon packet to update
    ubik_dbVersion when the sync site's database is received; just update
    it when we get the new database. Since no write transactions are
    allowed while the db is transferring, ubik_dbVersion can be safely
