Bug#864712: release-notes: Document possible QGIS upgrade failure

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

The jessie to stretch upgrade may fail due to a file conflict in the
QGIS packages as reported in #864695.

Because the fix cannot be included in stretch r0, the issue should be
documented in the release notes.

Please consider the attached patch.

Kind Regards,
