Replace deprecated User::makeGroupLinkWiki() calls in CentralAuth's SpecialGlobalUsers

Actual error message from MediaWiki's CentralAuth extension:

Use of User::makeGroupLinkWiki was deprecated in MediaWiki 1.29. [Called from GlobalUsersPager::getUserGroups in /srv/mediawiki/php-1.31.0-wmf.10/extensions/CentralAuth/includes/specials/SpecialGlobalUsers.php at line 270]

We have to replace User::makeGroupLinkWiki() by the equivalent methods on the [[ | UserGroupMembership ]] class.

You are expected to provide a patch in Wikimedia Gerrit. See for how to set up Git and Gerrit.
