This long time coming release includes some pending bug fixes and some
new man pages, functions, macros and modules imported from various BSDs,
in particular:

 * Add new man page for reallocarray(3) function.
 * Add explicit_bzero(3) function.
 * Add __DECONST, __DEVOLATILE, __DEQUALIFY, __offsetof, __rangeof and
   __containerof macros to <sys/cdefs.h>.
 * Sync <sys/queue.h> from FreeBSD.

In addition, these two important changes:

 * Rework arc4random(3) based on code from OpenBSD and LibreSSL,
   switching it from RC4 to ChaCha, while preserving the API.
 * Deprecation of the fgetln(3) function, given that POSIX.1-2008 has
   standardized the getline(3) GNU extension for some time now. And even
   though the implementation within is one of the better ones around in
   embedded portability code, it still cannot be ported properly and it
   is unsafe to use. There is no reason to use it when there is a
   perfectly viable and portable replacement nowadays.
