libostree v2017.4

A notable new feature in this release is a *fourth* repository
mode: "bare-user-only". This is very similar to `bare-user`, but
canonicalizes permissions and ignores xattrs.  The intended
use of this is for "non-OS" container tools such as flatpak, where one
intentionally discards the traditional file ownership.
(I'm calling this container case "non-OS" to distinguish from other container tools
 where one might want to "log in" via PAM and supporting distinct UIDs
 inside a single container is valuable)
More information:

We have a few new APIs, such as `ostree_check_version()` which is
important when making use of some of the "API extensions" we have
using `GVariant` on e.g. `ostree_repo_pull_with_options()`.

The diff is a bit larger due to us switching to a new code style.

Another quite important change is that `ostree trivial-httpd` is
disabled by default.  With a libcurl build, this is the last part
that links to libsoup.  It's only needed for unit tests, so can
be subpackaged or discarded.  (We're doing the latter for Fedora)

Speaking of curl, we now support `--with-openssl` which enables
using OpenSSL's `libcrypto` for SHA256.  This can be notably faster.
You likely want this if e.g. `libcurl` is already linked to OpenSSL
for you.  I'm increasingly confident in the curl code, and should
be ready to recommend using it by default in the next release or

Thanks to all contributors!
