all: replace usages of whitelist/blacklist and master/slave

There's been plenty of discussion on the usage of these terms in tech.
I'm not trying to have yet another debate. It's clear that there are
people who are hurt by them and who are made to feel unwelcome by their
use due not to technical reasons but to their historical and social
context. That's simply enough reason to replace them.

Anyway, allowlist and blocklist are more self-explanatory than whitelist
and blacklist, so this change has negative cost.

Didn't change vendored, bundled, and minified files. Nearly all changes
are tests or comments, with a couple renames in cmd/link and cmd/oldlink
which are extremely safe. This should be fine to land during the freeze
without even asking for an exception.
