[opensuse-factory] glibc update in Base:System - Call for testing

* The dynamic linker now recognizes supported ABI versions from the
EI_ABIVERSION field in the ELF header.
Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.

* New NIS mode selector ADJUNCT_AS_SHADOW. The passwd.adjunct.byname table
will not be used to fill in password fields in the passwd.byname replies.
Instead it is used to synthesize the shadow.byname table, should it be
missing. This is a useful mode in some installations involving Solaris.
Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.

* New locales: kok_IN, sq_MK, cv_RU
