Aircrack-ng 1.5.2

This is a smaller release than the previous one but we did want to release the fixes and improvements before the holidays so it will be available for Shmoocon next month in your favorite distro.

Small issues were found in 1.5 and then in 1.5.1, which is why we ended up with 1.5.2. Respectively, a crash when running aircrack-ng without any arguments and 1.5.1 was still displaying 1.5 as the version number.

Among visible fixes, the slip issue in airodump-ng when selecting an AP in interactive mode is solved, the cursor will stay on the selected BSSID when the list moves around. By rewriting the queues handling wordlists in aircrack-ng, some cracking issues and intermittent failures are fixed. We also have a new output file for GPS logging called logcsv. A few cosmetic issues have been fixed.

There are also code quality improvements, a few new tests, improved and updated Raspberry Pis detection (nexmon), revamped GPS logging functionality in airodump-ng, fixes for Big Endian and building/cross-compiling on various OSes and last but not least, building packages for Ubuntu 18.10.
