Remove Banner mechanism

System Internals / glibc - Joseph Myers [codesourcery.com] - 22 September 2017 13:43 EDT

This patch removes the Banner mechanism, with the last remaining Banner file replaced by a contrib.texi entry. This accords with the principle that the output of running libc.so.6 is not the place to credit particular contributions (the manual is), and with all other configuration options not mentioned there, it doesn't seem appropriate to focus there on the one question of whether the one remaining piece configured as an add-on was enabled or not.

Tested for x86_64.

- csu/Makefile (generated): Do not add version-info.h. (before-compile): Likewise. (all-Banner-files): Remove variable. ($(objpfx)version-info.h): Remove rule.
- csu/version.c (banner): Do not include "version-info.h".
- libidn/Banner: Remove.
- manual/contrib.texi (Simon Josefsson): New entry.
