I'll try to remember to fix the "derpecated" typo in the ChangeLog

The attached patch is the backport I've pushed to the gcc-10 branch,
which only adds the new _GLIBCXX_DEPRECATED_SUGGEST macro and doesn't
enable it for C++98.

The version for gcc-9 is the same but doesn't touch the __is_nullptr_t
trait, because GCC 10.1.0 was the first release to deprecate that.
