Fixes the following security issues according to NEWS:

CVE-2017-1000408: Incorrect array size computation in _dl_init_paths leads
to the allocation of too much memory.  (This is not a security bug per se,
it is mentioned here only because of the CVE assignment.) Reported by

CVE-2017-1000409: Buffer overflow in _dl_init_paths due to miscomputation of
the number of search path components.  (This is not a security vulnerability
per se because no trust boundary is crossed if the fix for CVE-2017-1000366
has been applied, but it is mentioned here only because of the CVE
assignment.) Reported by Qualys.

CVE-2017-16997: Incorrect handling of RPATH or RUNPATH containing $ORIGIN
for AT_SECURE or SUID binaries could be used to load libraries from the
current directory.

CVE-2018-1000001: Buffer underflow in realpath function when getcwd function
succeeds without returning an absolute path due to unexpected behaviour of
the Linux kernel getcwd syscall.  Reported by halfdog.
