Use CVE-2015-8557.

> The old patch caused problems. Here's a better upstream patch

As far as we can tell, the old patch used shlex.quote whereas the new
patch has a different solution involving subprocess.Popen. If
python-pygments-2.0.2-3.fc23 had a vulnerability because shlex.quote
didn't adequately protect against command injection, then there should
be a second CVE ID for that vulnerability. Otherwise, we'll interpret
"old patch caused problems" to mean usability problems.
