XZ by default and JSON

We've implemented two oft-requested features today:

  1. The download links now default to .tar.xz versions of archives
  2. There is now a JSON file with the release information located in https://www.kernel.org/releases.json. If you've been screen-scraping the front page, please use this instead.

If you have any other feature suggestions, please send them to webmaster@kernel.org.
