Bacula Release 9.2.1

We are pleased to announce the minor bug and refactoring release version 9.2.1.

This is a bug fix release. It also contains some refactoring. That said,
there are 10,909 lines of diff between release 9.2.0 and this release.

One major improvement is that this release should eliminate the persistent
problem we have seen with MySQL unhappy with zero DATETIME fields. If you
have problems with that, please simply execute the script update_bacula_tables
found in the /src/cats library. It will modify the table default
values for DATETIME fields to be friendly to the whims of MySQL and MariaDB.
Note, this script should be used only if you have already upgraded to Bacula
version 9.2.0. It will modify the attributes of several of the table columns in
a non-destructive manor, but will not change the Bacula catalog version (16).
If you use the script to create the tables, you do not need to run the update
script.
