Make the setting of write-bits safer in Porting\makerel

When rolling a release on Windows it is useful to use the Cygwin tools, but
the chmod command doesn't honour the user's umask when operating outside of
the Cygwin bash shell. For example, with a umask of 0022 and a file having
permissions 0400, one would expect "chmod +w" to change the file's
permissions to 0600. It does inside the Cygwin bash shell, but inside the
standard Windows command prompt it changes the file permissions to 0622
instead.

The problem is avoided by using "chmod u+w" instead to be sure that we only
set the write-bit for the owner user.

Note that the PAUSE indexer now detects uploads containining world writable

regcomp.c: Use longjmp to abandon first pass quickly

regcomp.c currently does a first pass to determine the size needed for
the regex.  If the regex needs to be in utf8, but this wasn't known at
the beginning of the pass the size computation needs to be completely
redone with that in mind.  The input is converted to utf8 and the first
pass is redone.  Prior to this patch, the discovery of needing to redo
the first pass merely set a flag and continued the now useless rest of
the first pass.  This patch causes this first pass to be aborted
immediately upon discovering that it will have to be redone.

This uses the Perl macros that wrap setjmp and longjmp.  When the first
pass is abandoned, it longjmps back to the corresponding setjmp to
convert to utf8 and redo.  I was advised that I could use setjmp and
longjump directly, but it seemed safer to use the wrappers, as they
should know about any platform-dependent issues.

If this code intercepts a longjmp that wasn't meant for it, it simply
reissues the longjmp so that the correct handler will get it.

This patch should have no effect on externally visible behavior, except
for a speedup of some regex compiles.

list cxt hash assign with dups gives garbage

Fix for #31865: weird results from reverse( %x = reverse %h )

Basically, anything of the form
    @a = %h = (list with some duplicate keys)
may have left @a containing weird and/or freed values.

There was a partial fix for this with ca65944e, but it was broken
(it did one big block move on the stack at the end to remove duplicates,
but duplicates weren't necessarily all in one block.)

The new fix is a two-stage process. First, while pulling key/value pairs
of the stack and assigning them to the hash, each key/val pair is written
back to the stack - possibly at a lower position if there are duplicates to
be skipped.

Finally at the end if any duplicates have been detected, then in list
context, a single pass is made through the stack, and for each key/val
pair, the key is looked up and the val on the stack is overwritten with
the new value (replacing possibly freed or other garbage values).

Change the &Internals::* functions that use references in their
prototypes to check if the argument is SvROK() before calling SvRV().

If the function is called as Internals::FOO() perl does this check for
us, but prototypes are bypassed on &Internals::FOO() so we still have
to check this manually.

probably all earlier perl versions that had these functions, but I
