  This aligns the 2.42 NEWS with the update backported to the 2.42 release
branch.

Pushed as an obvious follow up to my 2.42 branch commit.

... I had left that in for a reason, so this change doesn't look quite
as obvious to me. What's wrong with stating this subset of B16B16, when
it's relatively easy to make properly work (patches about to be
committed on master, and ought to be straightforward to cherry-pick
onto the branch)?
