[perl #111864] Don’t leave obj on stack for -x $overloaded

Commit 8db8f6b697e changed the way filetest operators use the stack,
in order to make stacked -t work.

Filetest operators were changed to pop the argument off the stack for
a standalone operator, but to leave it on the stack for a stacking op
(so the next operator could use it).  The code for handling overloaded
objects, which was separate, was already doing something similar, by
not popping the object off the stack.

I made the mistake of changing overloaded objects’ return code to
share code with regular filetest operators (the FT_RETURN_* macros),
but without changing the way the overload code got the item from the
stack to begin with.  Hence, the returning code assumed that the argu-
ment had been popped for non-stacking ops, which was not the case.

This commit changes the way the overload case does it’s return, to
account for the fact that the object must be left on the stack when
initially fetched from it (in case the object turns out not to have -X
overloading and the regular code has to kick in).

This patch only fixes the problem for croaks that occur in the peep-

It does this by doing SAVEFREEOP first and then restoring the

A more correct fix might be to do op_free in die_unwind before
POPEVAL, but I would have to do a lot more digging through the code
to tell whether that is safe.  I don’t feel comfortable with doing
that for 5.16.

This leak causes this warning on non-threaded debugging builds:

This problem does not affect the main program, because perl_destruct
frees PL_main_root.  It does not affect subroutines, as the op tree is
attached to the CV first, so freeing the CV frees the op tree.

Clarify VMS-specific handling of $/ = \N.

When the record read feature was introduced in 5b2b9c687790241e8
in 1998 (but by Dan Sugalski, not Hans Mulder as the git history
erroneously says), sysread() was a couple of years from learning
about utf-8 and PerlIO was just a fancy way of calling stdio.  The
documentation was reasonable given that environment.

Now it's potentially misleading to say that record reads are "the
equivalent of C<sysread>" because sysread on filehandles opened
with ":utf8" does characters, not bytes.  The salient point about
the analogy with sysread was always that the read is unbuffered.
In the old days, this was in contrast to the buffering done in
stdio's fread(), but now it's in contrast to the buffering in the
perlio layer.  By emphasizing the role of buffering, we can
actually shorten and simplify the docs.

Side note:  Both Camel 3 and Camel 4 have the following problematic
statement in the documentation of $/: "Record mode mixes with line
mode only on systems where standard I/O supplies a read(3) function;
VMS is a notable exception."  VMS certainly does have a read(3)
function and in fact that's what's used directly for record reads
(via PerlLIO_read) on VMS only.  And as far as I know, it is
fread(), not read(), that is considered "standard I/O" everywhere.

N.B. Record reads on non-record-oriented files on VMS will likely
start using the same buffering as other platforms in a future
version of Perl.
