Update GNU and kernel.org mirror lists
Note that from the original submission by Daniel on kernel.org,
heanet.ie was updated to match the directory,
rackspace and slackwere were dropped because they were outdated.
Mirror update status was checked with libpci/pciutils-3.7.0.tar.xz
and gnuchess-6.2.7 a few minutes ago.
Submitted by: Daniel Engberg
I've adjusted the heanet.ie path, and removed http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/ and https://mirror.rackspace.com because they were not up to date and some links of the mirror.rackspace.com website were broken. I think we have enough other mirrors.
I've also moved www.kernel.org up which apparently does GeoIP-based DNS resolution and serves from four sites hosted by co. packet, see https://cdn.kernel.org/fast-new-frontends-with-packet.html
