Subject: [OE-core] [PATCH RFC] mirrors: Switch glibc and binutils to use
shallow mirror tarballs

These two repositories are large and overload our downloads server as a
premirror but the recipes are easier to maintain as git urls. Compromise
and use shallow clones for them.

In order to be effective, we need premirror entries on where to find
the shallow mirror tarballs.

Please use PREMIRRORS:append here, or you will wipe away any
default configuration of PREMIRRORS defined using "?=".
No, I'm not using append here since I do want users to be able to reset this. We
should change the default to "=" if that is causing an issue.
