PATCH: GH #17081: Workaround glibc bug with LC_MESSAGES

Please see the ticket for a full explanation.  This bug has been
submitted to glibc, without any real action forthcoming so far.

This invalidates the message cache each time the locale of LC_MESSAGES
is changed, as glibc should be doing this when uselocale changes that,
but glibc fails to do so.

This patch is an extension to the one submitted by Niko Tyni++.

I don't know how to test it, since a test would rely on several
different locales in different languages being available, and that
depends on what's installed on the platform.  I suppose that one could
go through the available locales, and try to find three with different
wording for the same message.  Doing so however would trigger the bug,
and at the end, if we didn't get three that differed, we wouldn't know
we wouldn't know if it is because of the bug, or that they just didn't
exist on the system.

However, below is a perl program that demonstrated the patch worked.
You could adjust it to the available locales.  The buggy code shows the
same text for all locales.  The fixed shows three different languages.

use strict;

use Locale::gettext;
use POSIX;

$ENV{LANG} = 'C.UTF-8';

for my $lang (qw(fi_FI fr_FR en_US)) {
    $ENV{LANGUAGE} = $lang;

Properly handle filled /il regnodes and multi-char folds

becomes filled with the first 'S', so that the next regnode would begin

a filled regnode) for non-/l patterns.

If the locale isn't a UTF-8 one, the 'SS' sequence shouldn't match the
SHARP S, and it won't, but we have to construct the node so that it can
