This series imports the readline 8.0 patches from upstream readline.

I tested these on the x86-64 buildbot builder.
Let me know what you think.

This is great, I've been meaning to do this but didn't get around to it.

But it would probably be good to update readline/README to mention
that the 4 patches got applied?

I'm going to check this series in now.

I think we can just rely on readline itself to document the patchlevel.
I'm adding the appended patch to this series to make this more obvious.

    the "git am" approach to importing new upstream patches.
