Make perlio line buffer VMS record-oriented files on output.

When perlio flushes down to the unix layer, it can introduce a
spurious record boundary when writing to a record-oriented file.
Perl may create such files when doing edit-in-place or any other
context where the file format is inherited from a previous
version of the file.

The problem can be eliminated by enabling line buffering on such
files when they are opened.  This was a regression in 5.10.0 since
before that stdio's buffering performed the same function.

N.B.  Lines longer than the size of the perlio buffer will still
result in multiple records -- a larger buffer may be necessary.

[perl #74022] Parser hangs on some Unicode characters

This changes the definition of isIDFIRST_utf8 to avoid any characters
that would put the parser in a loop.

isIDFIRST_utf8 is used all over the place in toke.c. Almost every
instance is followed by a call to S_scan_word. S_scan_word is only
called when it is known that there is a word to scan.

What was happening was that isIDFIRST_utf8 would accept a character,
but S_scan_word in toke.t would then reject it, as it was using
is_utf8_alnum, resulting in an infinite number of zero-length

Another possible solution was to change S_scan_word to use
isIDFIRST_utf8 or similar, but that has back-compatibility problems,
as it stops q·foo· from being a strings and makes it an identi-
fier instead.
