Bug Description

There have been a number of microreleases of PHP 7.1 upstream since the last update to Artful. As
it has been a few months, it feels appropriate to provide a MRE update to php7.1. A number of critical security and bug-fixes are present in each 7.1.x. Rather than backporting individual patches, I believe it makes significantly more sense to follow the upstream 7.1.x. Upstream PHP is demonstrating an improved approach of bugfixes only in 7.1.x:

 - 7.1.11: http://php.net/ChangeLog-7.php

The upstream CI is at: https://travis-ci.org/php/php-src and is run regularly.

Our php7.1 source package has autopkgtests for the 4 SAPIs, mod-php, cgi, fpm and cli. We have also updated the packaging to run the source tests during the build itself.

I do not believe there is a firm statement from upstream on API/ABI stability, but the general approach seems to be a BC-break would result in 7.2.0.

We already had an MRE for php7.0 in X and Y, and this is the corresponding source package in AA.
