inspircd 2.0.23

Bugzie appears to have eaten the emails about this.  I never saw this in "bugs assigned to me", because of course, it's assigned to a security@ alias instead of a person that can fix it.

Attached is a bump, fully tested (build, run, and client connect) on x86_64 and PPC64.

Now in repository. Let's wait until 2017-02-27 before we start stabilization.
