    PUSHs(TARG); /* avoid SvSETMAGIC here */

Calling set-magic when substr returns an lvalue will cause its argu-
ment to be stringified even if the lvalue is not assigned to. That’s
why set-magic has to be avoided.

But the result is that utf8 caches (stored in magic) on TARG are not
reset properly.

Since substr lvalues now follow a different code path (and do not use
TARG at all), it’s perfectly safe to call set-magic at this point.
It’s also the right thing to do in case of other types of magic that
might get attached to TARG.

Fix up \cX for 5.14

Throughout 5.13 there was temporary code to deprecate and forbid
certain values of X following a \c in qq strings.  This patch fixes
this to the final 5.14 semantics.

These are:

1) a utf8 non-ASCII character will croak.  This is the same
behavior as pre-5.13, but it gives a correct error message, rather than
the malformed utf8 message previously.

2) \c{ and \cX where X is above ASCII will generate a deprecated
message.  The intent is to remove these capabilities in 5.16.  The
original agreement was to croak on above ASCII, but that does violate
our stability policy, so I'm deprecating it instead.

3) A non-deprecated warning is generated for all other \cX; this is the
same as throughout the 5.13 series.

I did not have the tuits to use \c{} as I had planned in 5.14, but \N{}
can be used instead.

[perl #82854] utf8, $SIG{__DIE__}, syntax errors and Carp

If a syntax error has occurred, module loading causes the ‘BEGIN not
safe after errors’ error.

As of perl 5.12.0 (commit 7d0994e05, actually), error messages men-
tioning variable names that originate from ‘use utf8’ scopes and are
passed to __DIE__ handlers correctly have the UTF8 flag turned on, so
that a variable named $ġ will actually cause the error message to con-
tain ‘$ġ’, rather than ‘$Ä¡’. (As a side effect, even if the variable
does not contain non-ASCII characters, the error message still gets
the UTF8 flag turned on.)

Carp was using a \d in a regular expression against the error message.

\d loads Unicode tables if the LHS has the UTF8 flag turned on.

This means that this snippet:

use utf8;
use strict;
use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';
$c;

dies with ‘BEGIN not safe...’, because the error message that triggers
it is ‘Global symbol "$c" requires explicit package name’, it has the
UTF8 flag turned on, CGI::Carp passes it to Carp.pm, Carp tries to do
a /\d/ match against it and \d tries to load Unicode tables, dying
with ‘BEGIN not safe...‘.

This commit just changes the \d in Carp.pm to [0-9], since that is
what was intended anyway.
