Add news item about the Gigacage feature

webkit2gtk 2.20.0 contains a security feature named Gigacage that
requires a virtual memory region of several gigabytes and is used for
variable-length random-access allocations.
One consequence of this is that webkit-based applications may not run if
their maximum virtual memory size is restricted (e.g. using ulimit -v).
If it's not possible to remove the VM size limits the Gigacage can be
disabled by setting the environment variable GIGACAGE_ENABLED=no. Keep
in mind that you will be making your system less secure by doing this.
