Transition from GeoIP Legacy to MaxMindDB.
MaxMind is discontinuing its legacy databases in April in favor of GeoIP2, which use a newer database format (MaxMind DB). The reference C library (libmaxminddb) is available under the Apache 2.0 license which isn't quite compatible with ours. Add mmdbresolve, a utility that reads IPv4 and IPv6 addresses on stdin and prints resolved information on stdout. Place it under a liberal license (MIT) so that we can keep libmaxminddb at arm's length. Add epan/maxmind_db.[ch], which spawns mmdbresolve and communicates with it via stdio. Migrate the preferences and documentation to MaxMindDB. Change the IPv4 and IPv6 asnum fields to FT_UINT32s. Change the geographic coordinate fields to FT_DOUBLEs.
