Update redis to 2.8.7.

--[ Redis 2.8.7 ] Release date: 5 Mar 2014

# UPGRADE URGENCY: LOW for Redis, LOW for Sentinel. However this release adds
                   new features so users may want to upgrade in order to
                   exploit the new functionalities.

* [FIX] Sometimes the absolute config file path was obtained in a wrong way.
        This happened when there was a "dir" directive inside the config file
        and at the same time the configuration file was given as a relative
        path to redis-server or redis-sentinel executables.
* [FIX] redis-cli: Automatically enter --slave mode when SYNC or PSYNC are
        called during an interactive session.
* [FIX] Sentinel "IDONTKNOW" error removed as it does not made sense with the
        new Sentinel design. This error was actually a fix for a design error
        in the first implementation of Sentinel.
* [FIX] Sentinel: added a missing exit() call to abort after config file
        checks at startup. This error was introduced with an improvement in
        a previous 2.8 release.
* [FIX] BITCOUNT: fixed unaligned access causing issues in sparc and other
        archs not capable of dealing with unaligned accesses. This also makes
        the code faster in archs where unaligned accesses are allowed.
* [FIX] Sentinel: better nodes fail over start time desynchronization to avoid
        split-brain during the voting process needed to get authorization to
        fail over. This means the system is less likely to need to retry
        and will fail over faster. No changes in behavior / correctness.
* [FIX] Force INFO used_memory_peak to match peak memory. This generated some
        confusion among users even if it was not an actual bug.

* [NEW] Sentinel unit tests and framework. More tests needed and units must
        be improved in order to have less false positives, but it is a start
        and features a debugging console that is useful to fix tests or to
        inspect bugs causing tests failures.
* [NEW] New Sentinel events: +/-monitor and +set used to monitor when an
        instance to monitor is added or removed, or when a configuration
        is modified via SENTINEL SET.
* [NEW] Redis-cli updated to use SCAN instead of random sampling via
        RANDOMKEY in order to implement --bigkeys feature. Moreover the
        implementation now supports pipelining and reports more information
        at the end of the scan. Much faster, much better. A special thank
        you to Michael Grunder for this improvement.
* [NEW] redis-cli now supports a new --intrinsic-latency mode that is able
        to meter the latency of a system due to kernel / hypervisor.
        How to use it is explained at
* [NEW] New command BITPOS: find first bit set or clear in a bitmap.
* [NEW] CONFIG REWRITE calls are now logged.

--[ Redis 2.8.6 ] Release date: 13 Feb 2014

# UPGRADE URGENCY: HIGH for Redis, LOW for Sentinel. Redis users using Lua
                   scripts with EVALSHA and attached slaves and/or AOF
                   persistence should consider upgrading ASAP.

* [FIX] Fixed an critical EVALSHA script cache bug: scripts executed may not
        propagate to AOF / Slaves correctly under certain conditions.
        See issue #1549 at Github for more information.
* [FIX] Fixed multiple bugs resulting into closing the link with master or slave
        during replication without good reasons. This will result in useless
        resynchronizations, or infinite loops where the replication link can't
        be established.
* [FIX] Don't count the time needed to populate the buffers of clients waiting
        in MONITOR mode when populating the Slow Log entries.

* [NEW] AOF write errors (like no space on device) no longer abort Redis if the
        fsync policy is none or every second. The database enters a read-only
        mode where every write is refused with an error. Normal operations are
        restored as soon as Redis is able to append again data to the AOF file.
* [NEW] Sentinel now accepts SHUTDOWN command.

--[ Redis 2.8.5 ] Release date: 4 Feb 2014

# UPGRADE URGENCY: HIGH for Redis, LOW for Sentinel. Redis users using Lua
                   scripts with expires, and Redis users relying on the
                   ability of Redis to block writes on RDB saving errors
                   should plan to upgrade ASAP.

* [FIX] Fixed a replication bug caused by Lua scripts + expired keys: keys could
        expire in the middle of scripts causing non-deterministic behavior.
* [FIX] MISCONFIG error if condition fixed, the server was no longer able
        to stop writes on RDB misconfiguration after this error was introduced.
* [FIX] REDIS_AOF_REWRITE_MIN_SIZE is now 64mb like example redis.conf default.
* [FIX] Perform fflush() before fsync() in rio.c (bug without actual effects).
* [FIX] Don't log MONITOR clients as disconnecting slaves.
* [FIX] SENTINEL MASTER arity check fixed. Crashed the Sentinel instance when
        the command was given without arguments.

* [NEW] Allow CONFIG and SHUTDOWN while in stale-slave state.
* [NEW] Support for configurable TCP listen(2) backlog size.
* [NEW] redis-cli supports SCAN via the --scan and --pattern options.
* [NEW] SENTINEL SET master quorum via runtime API implemented.

--[ Redis 2.8.4 ] Release date: 13 Jan 2014

# UPGRADE URGENCY: MODERATE for Redis and Sentinel.

* [FIX] Makefile compatibility with non common make variants improved.
* [FIX] SDIFF crash in very unlikely to trigger state fixed.
* [FIX] Config rewriting fixed: don't wipe options unknown to the rewrite
* [FIX] Set TCP port to 0 works again to disable TCP networking.
* [FIX] Fixed replication with old Redis instances as masters by not
        sending REPLCONF ACK to them.
* [FIX] Fix keyspace notifications rewrite and CONFIG GET output.
* [FIX] Fix RESTORE TTL handling in 32 bit systems (32 bit overflow).

* [NEW] Sentinel now has a run time configuration API.
* [NEW] Log when we lost connection with master or slave.
* [NEW] When instance is turned from slave to master now inherits the
        old master replication offset when possible. This improves the
        Sentinel failover procedure.
