[Android] Project fails to build using the updated Android SDK Tools 26.0 during the merging manifest files



Reproduction steps:
1. Update Android SDK Tools to 26.0.1 or 26.0.2;
- Android Studio -> Configure -> SDK Manager -> Android SDK -> SDK Tools
2. Create the new project;
3. Switch the platform to Android in the Build settings;
4. Enable "Virtual Reality Supported" and select VR SDKs (Oculus or Daydream) in the Player settings;
5. Build the project;

Actual result: the project does not build and the window "Build failure" shows up with an error "Unable to merge android manifests" (build_failure.jpg).
Expected result: the project should be built on Android platform.

Note: the issue happens only when Android SDK Tools is updated to 26.0, because when it is 25.2.5 version, everything works fine. Also, if "Virtual Reality Supported" is disabled, everything works correctly too.

Reproduced with: 5.4.5p2, 5.5.3p3, 5.6.0p4, 2017.1.0b4

    This does not work for me in 5.4.5p5
    The only solution is to roll back the sdk tools from 26 to 25
    I have downgraded the sdk tools to 25.2.5 and it has been solved.

    It's working with Tools 26.1.1 on Unity 2017.3.p1

    Not fixed in the latest versions 2017.2 and 2017.3, I'm using Windows 10 x64 with JDK 1.8 and I've tried with Android SDK versions 20 to 27. It is such a drag having to waste hours on hours fixing something as simple building your app!

    The only solution I've found is reverting back to Unity 5.3 and using an old version of the Oculus and OpenVR packages.

    Very frustrating. So far lost almost a day just trying to build a basic GearVR apk.
