Bugs fixed

Backup process would fail if xtrabackup --throttle option was used. Bug fixed #1554235.

.ibd files for remote tablespaces were not copied back to original location pointed by the .isl files. Bug fixed #1555423.

When called with insufficient parameters, like specifying the empty xtrabackup --defaults-file option, Percona XtraBackup could crash. Bug fixed #1566228.

Documentation states that the default value for xtrabackup --ftwrl-wait-query-type is all, however it was update. Changed the default value to reflect the documentation. Bug fixed #1566315.

Free Software Foundation address in copyright notices was outdated. Bug fixed #1222777.

Backup process would fail if the datadir specified on the command-line was not the same as one that is reported by the server. Percona XtraBackup now allows the datadir from my.cnf override the one from SHOW VARIABLES. xtrabackup will print a warning that they don’t match, but continue. Bug fixed #1526467.

Backup process would fail on MariaDB if binary logs were in non-standard directory. Bug fixed #1517629.

Output of xtrabackup --slave-info option was missing an apostrophe. Bug fixed #1573371.
