[Bitcoin-segwit2x] segwit2x testnet activation triggered

A quick break-down, since this is getting social media play: Someone added
mining power to testnet5 and accelerated it to the HF-on-block-X activation
point. Although unexpected timing, this is otherwise a good field test.
Test networks have minimal mining power, unlike "live" bitcoin mainnet, so
it is normal for these sorts of block accelerations to be possible. It
will get un-stuck soon.
For the medium term, the client will receive a few updates to test further
activation scenarios - as was always the plan (issue #51) - implying that
both further client testnet updates and further testnet5 disruption can be
expected. This is the whole reason for a test network, after all.
