Update master_iconmap.xml to the services version

Description

The master_iconmap.xml in 0.20-fixes contains mappings for zap2it/zap2it2 that refer to no-longer-functional URI's on the Zap2It web site. Users that are missing icons for channels that exist in the callsignnetworkmap/networkiconmap will receive errors from mythfilldatabase every time it runs, when it tries to update the channel icons (i.e. as at http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/286238#286238 ).

Users need an updated iconmap to fix these errors. Since the new services iconmap use other (better) sources for channel icons, updating master_iconmap.xml in -fixes to the services version (i.e. as obtained by running "./contrib/master_iconmap/channel_icons.pl --iconmap") would allow users to run:

mythfilldatabase --import-icon-map master_iconmap.xml --reset-icon-map

to reset their callsignnetworkmap and networkiconmap tables to use new URI's that don't use the Zap2It website. Once this is done, users will no longer get the mfdb channel icon errors.

Though not required--since users of trunk can use channel_icons.pl to download an updated iconmap--updating the master_iconmap.xml in trunk also makes sense as the version that's currently in trunk is older than the services version (so if updated only in -fixes, the -fixes version would be newer than the trunk version).
