Bug#282853: query options ignore --root

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.25

Query options of dpkg (-s, -S, -l, -L etc...) ignore the --root=... or
--admindir=... command line options, they perform the query outside the
chroot, using the database under /var/lib/dpkg.

However, calling dpkg-query directly honors the --admindir option and
correctly uses the database specified there. On the other hand, it doesn't
know about the --root option.

And dpkg doesn't pass these options to dpkg-query.
