make overload respect get magic

In most places, ops checked their args for overload *before* doing
mg_get(). This meant that, among other issues, tied vars that
returned overloaded objects wouldn't trigger calling the
overloaded method.  (Actually, for tied and arrays and hashes, it
still often would since mg_get gets called beforehand in rvalue

This patch does the following:

Makes sure get magic is called first.

Moves most of the overload code formerly included by macros at the
start of each pp function into the separate helper functions
Perl_try_amagic_bin, Perl_try_amagic_un, S_try_amagic_ftest,
with 3 new wrapper macros:
tryAMAGICbin_MG, tryAMAGICun_MG, tryAMAGICftest_MG.
This made the code 3800 bytes smaller.

Makes sure that FETCH is not called multiple times. Much of this
bit was helped by some earlier work from Father Chrysostomos.

Added new functions and macros sv_inc_nomg(), sv_dec_nomg(),
dPOPnv_nomg, dPOPXiirl_ul_nomg, dPOPTOPnnrl_nomg, dPOPTOPiirl_ul_nomg
dPOPTOPiirl_nomg, SvIV_please_nomg, SvNV_nomg (again, some of
these were based on Father Chrysostomos's work).

Fixed the list version of the repeat operator (x): it now only
calls overloaded methods for the scalar version:
    (1,2,$overloaded) x 10
no longer erroneously calls

The only thing I haven't checked/fixed yet is overloading the
iterator operator, <>.

regarding the new XL C/C++ V11 compiler. This patch is only for bleed.
I have already posted the correct fix for maint-5.12.

Nicholas Clark [Thu, 13 May 2010 11:04:55 +0000 (12:04 +0100)]
Return 0 (with a warning) for sprintf("%.0g") and sprintf("%.0f")

There is special case code in the sprintf implementation, for simple %f and %g
formats, conditionally compiled in only when NVs are doubles. Under long
doubles, these are handled by the general purpose code, which always returns
0 if the argument is missing. Note that sprintf(" %.0g"), ie a leading space,
sufficient to bypass the special case code, would return the string " 0".

The special case code used to return an empty string, meaning that the
behaviour of sprintf("%.0g") and sprintf("%.0f") was inconsistent between a
perl built with doubles, and a perl with long doubles, and the behaviour of
sprintf("%.0g") and sprintf(" %.0g") was inconsistent.

5b98cd54dff3b163 fixed #62874 - the special case code did not warn, but
changed behaviour to return 0. d347ad18ecf3da70 undid the behaviour change,
viewing it as a regression. However, the tests added in 5b98cd54dff3b163
expose the inconsistency in behaviour between doubles and long doubles.

There should be no inconsistency, hence the only logically consistent
conclusion is that the special case implementation was wrong - it cannot
give results inconsistent with the general code. Hence this commit changes
it to return 0 (with a warning). This is achieved by simply skipping the
special case code, if there are insufficient arguments.

The problem is that a dot can come between the braces in \N{},
but when searching for it, I didn't stop looking at the right brace, so
it generated an error inappropriately.
