Re-import multimedia/adobe-flash-player24 as multimedia/adobe-flash-player
for future major version bump with compatibility.

We had multiple adobe-flash-plugin versions in the past because
newer 11.x versions didn't work on older (4.x) NetBSD systems.
However I guess Adobe will not put aggressive changes that require
newer Linux kernel version (i.e. emul.linux.kern.osrelease on NetBSD)
in future periodical major updates, as per their announcements:
 https://blogs.adobe.com/flashplayer/2016/08/beta-news-flash-player-npapi-for-linux.html
> Because this change is primarily a security initiative, some features
> (like GPU 3D acceleration and premium video DRM) will not be fully
> implemented.

No objection on pkgsrc-users@:

Also ok'ed by gdt@ in private mail.

NPAPI Adobe Flash player plugin for the Firefox browser.
This package contains a plugin that enables web browsers to render
the Flash format.

The nspluginwrapper option (enabled by default on non Linux platforms)
permits the use of the the Linux x86 and x86_64 flash player in Firefox
browsers on other x86 systems and x86_64 systems.

For NetBSD this package requires NetBSD 6.2 or 7.1 (and later versions)
which include procfs fixes for Linux binaries.

The flash plugin requires tmpfs to be mounted on /dev/shm for PulseAudio.

This can be automated by adding the following to your /etc/fstab:

tmpfs /emul/linux/dev/shm tmpfs rw,-m1777
