Faster sv_utf8_upgrade()

Consider what currently happens when the tokenizer is scanning a string.
It looks through it byte-by-byte until it finds a character that forces
it to decide to go to utf8.  It then calls sv_utf8_upgrade() with the
portion of the string scanned so far.

sv_utf8_upgrade() starts over from the beginning, and scans the string
byte-by-byte until it finds a character that varies between non-utf8 and
utf8.  It then calls bytes_to_utf8().

bytes_to_utf8() allocates a new string that can handle the worst case
expansion, 2n+1, of the entire string, and starts over from the
beginning, and scans the input string byte-by-byte copying and
converting each character to the output string as it goes.

It doesn't return the size of the new string, so sv_utf8_upgrade()
assumes it is only as big as what actually got converted, throwing away
knowledge of any spare.

It then returns to the tokenizer, which immediately does a grow to get
space for the unparsed input.  This is likely to cause a new string to
be allocated and copied from the one we had just created, even if that
string in actuality had enough space in it.

Thus, the invariant head portion of the string is scanned 3 times, and
probably 2 strings will be allocated and copied.

My solution to cutting this down is to do several things.

First, I added an extra flag for sv_utf8_upgrade that says don't bother
to check if the string needs to be converted to utf8, just assume it
does.  This eliminates one of the passes.

I also added a new parameter to sv_utf8_upgrade that says when you
return, I want this much unused space in the string.  That eliminates
the extra grow.

This was all done by renaming the current work-horse function from
sv_utf8_upgrade_flags to be sv_utf8_upgrade_flags_grow() and making the
current function name be a macro which calls the revised one with a 0
grow parameter.

I also improved the internal efficiency of sv_utf8_upgrade so that when
it does scan the string, it doesn't call bytes_to_utf8, but does the
conversion itself, using a fast memory copy instead of the byte-oriented
one for the invariant header, and it uses that header to get a better
estimate of the needed size of the new string, and it doesn't throw away
the knowledge of the allocated size.

And, if it is clear without scanning the whole string that the
conversion will fit in the already allocated string, it just uses that
instead of allocating and copying a new one, using the algorithm I
copied from the tokenizer.  (In this case it does have to finish
scanning the whole string to get the correct size.)  The comments have

It still is byte-oriented.  Vectorization et. al. could yield
performance improvements.  One idea for that is in the comments.

name than NATIVE_TO_ASCII.

much better git related version numbering in our (*nix for now) build process

The net result of this patch is to make available via and -v/-V the
details about the git version info we have available for the build. When built within
a git repository git is queried directly. When built from a snapshot or bundle
it is assumed that the source is unchanged, and that the required details are
avaialble in a file called .patch, whose format current is a four field string
in the following format: "$branchname $date.$time $sha1 $describe". The
generator of these files currently resides on

* git-describe is now used more directly with -v.
When the prefix of git-describe matches the version number
as determined by the defines in patchlevel.h then we use ONLY
the git-describe output, otherwise we include
the git describe in parenthesis after the version number. Either way
the describe text is optionally followed by a star should there be
uncommitted changes.
eg: This is perl, v5.11.0 (GitLive-blead-136-g58ca560) built for i686-linux
or: This is perl, v5.11.0-1-g58ca560 built for i686-linux
or: This is perl, v5.11.0 built for i686-linux

* include the SHA1 in perl -V summary, and automatically include unpushed
commits in the registered patches list

* include various git/version/.patch details in %Config, as follows:

git_commit_id             # sha1 of HEAD
git_ancestor              # ancestor in $remote/$branch (presumably canonical)
git_describe              # git describe
git_branch                # current branch
git_uncommitted_changes   # "true" if there are any, empty otherwise
git_unpushed_commits      # List of sha1's of unpushed commits
git_commit_id_title       # Used to make the perl -V summary output

Additionally one more value is added depending on build process used: when
building from an rsynced snapshot (or any dist including a file called
.patch) then the second field will be used to populate the
"git_snapshot_date" field. Otherwise if built in a git directory (as is hopefully
recommended these day) then the field will be "git_commit_date" which will be the
commit date of HEAD.

This patch introduces two new files (on top of .patchnum) that will be generated by "lib/" and "unpushed.h", the former is used to make
git data available to without rebuilding everything else, and the
second is used to expose unpushed commits (if any) via the registered patch facility
of patchlevel.h
