fwupd about to break API and ABI

Soon I’m going to merge a PR to fwupd that breaks API and ABI and bumps the soname. If you want to use the stable branch, please track 0_9_X. The API break removes all the deprecated API and cruft we’ve picked up in the months since we started the project, and with the upcoming 1.0.0 version coming up in a few weeks it seems a sensible time to have a clean out. If it helps, I’m going to put 0.9.x in Fedora 26 and F27, so master branch probably only for F28/rawhide and jhbuild at this point.

In other news, 4 days ago I became a father again, so expect emails to be delayed and full of confusion. All doing great, but it turns out sleep is for the weak. :)
