HAProxy 1.6.10 was released on 2016/11/20. It added 42 new commits
after version 1.6.9.

This release addresses some issues still present in 1.6.9 including
one failed attempt to fix a previous bug.

The most important fixes are :
  - finally the correct fix for the connection layer (the past two
    fixes to address the rare CLOSE_WAIT issues were incorrect). One
    bad side effect of these fixes was that they broke retransmits
    in proxy mode. Another one is that a rare case of unkillable task
    could sometimes happen ;

  - several fixes for the systemd wrapper : the wrapper needs to know
    when the new haproxy process has finished starting in order not to
    deliver reload signals during startup. This was responsible for some
    old processes remaining present when restarting too fast large configs.
    The wrapper's status code is now correct when haproxy fails to start.

  - fixed two bugs in the peers' task management possibly causing some
    CLOSE_WAIT connection after some rare race conditions.

And a small backport :
  - ability to disable SO_REUSEPORT, via "-dR" or "noreuseport" in the
    global section. Some people start to face some difficulties with it
    being enabled by default now that recent kernels support it.

The rest is mostly doc updates and minor fixes.
