[Mesa-dev] Rename "master" branch to "main"?

Seems reasonable to me...in the old Subversion days, we called it
'trunk'...then 'master' with Git...but calling the main development
branch 'main' is arguably the simplest and most descriptive term.

One thing we'll have to coordinate: getting Gitlab CI / Marge and the
Intel Mesa CI to switch over at the right time, so we don't end up
breaking/interrupting those services.  Should be easy, just requires
a bit of coordination.
