This update brings GeoIP to the current upstream release, with a number of bug fixes making the library more resistant to bad database files.

The geoipupdate tool has been unbundled from GeoIP upstream, and this has been reflected in the packaging. The update tool and the library are now packaged separately and will be updated independently of each other in future.

The GeoLite databases have always been distributed separately from the library upstream, and this has also now been reflected in the packaging. Again, the database files will be updated independently in future.

In order not to break anything for existing users, the builds for current stable Fedora releases and EPEL have dependencies that pull together all of the separate packages so that upgrading will not result in a loss of functionality. From Fedora 22 onwards though, the library only has a dependency on the IPv4 country database - users wanting to use geoipupdate should install that package themselves, and users wanting to use different databases should install the GeoIP-GeoLite-data-extra package, which includes the IPv6, City and AS number databases.
