Bugs fixed

Percona XtraBackup would crash when being prepared if the index compaction was enabled. Bug fixed #PXB-372.

Fixed build failure on Debian Stretch by adding support for building with OpenSSL 1.1. Bug fixed #PXB-501.

xbstream could run out of file descriptors while extracting the backup which contains many tables. Bug fixed #PXB-503.

Percona XtraBackup incorrectly determined use of master_auto_postion on a slave, and thus generated invalid xtrabackup_slave_info file. Bug fixed #PXB-505.

Along with xtrabackup_checkpints file, xtrabackup now copies xtrabackup_info file into directory specified by xtrabackup --extra-lsndir option. Bug fixed #PXB-1026.
