glibc open for 2.17 development, ports repository closed

Now that Roland has put the merge of ports onto master, I have applied the 
changes to version.h to open up 2.17 development (plus added a skeleton 
section to NEWS to start recording bugs fixed in 2.17), and added the 
README.ports-moved-to-libc file to the ports repository.  The hooks in the 
ports repository should now be configured to disallow future commits to 
master (until the point, maybe in a month or two, when we remove all files 
from master other than README.ports-moved-to-libc).

Changes that have reached consensus for 2.17 can now be pushed to master 
in the libc repository; please remember things that may be needed along 
with pushing a patch, such as updating NEWS and closing fixed bugs with 
reference to the commit fixing them.  It may be useful to repost other 
changes that were posted during (or before) the freeze but did not reach a 
consensus to include them for 2.17, so we can consider them further.  
(This includes ones where bugs were filed during the freeze to track the 
issue the patch was addressing.)

I think we still need a volunteer for 2.17 release manager.
