HarfBuzz version in TeXLive 2020

since the last HarfBuzz release, multiple quite useful features and
fixes have landed in the HarfBuzz GitHub repository. Especially there
has been a [change to support glyph names for PostScript flovored OTF
fonts](https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/pull/2054) and a [fix for an
issue with big font files](https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/pull/2080)
which has triggered errors when some fonts are detected by luaotfload

Would it be possible to either add a newer checkout of HarfBuzz for
TeXLive 2020 or to backport some of these patches?
