Force uninstall of OMSA?

Wait for other responses in case anyone has experience with this exact
scenario but....

I'd do an install of 4.4 with --force, then rpm -e that, then install 4.3.
The --oldpackage switch for rpm -U should let you install 4.3 over 4.4,
but since the 4.4 install is broken to start with, I'd do the forced
reinstall/uninstall of 4.4, then install 4.3.  Have had this work with
other busted installation scenarios, but not specifically OMSA.
