Log message:
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/201 … 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.
