Upstream HEAD (nightly, version 1.10) since 02538d463a350f5c3658f7aabefca16eb599d31c have changed their bootstrap process to use stable releases.

This breaks our make_orig-dl_tarball.py script. I made a start at fixing it, but haven't yet finished. I probably won't have time for another few weeks, so if someone wants to jump in ahead, then I've attached what I've done so far.

>From a quick look, it looks like we have to download the *entire* previous stable release. :( But there might be a more efficient way, I didn't spend too much time looking. If not, then the remaining task (for our script) is to extract rustc/bin/rustc from the downloaded tarball, then pack it up into our orig-dl.tar.xz.
