In S_parse_body(), don't "leak" linestr_sv until global destruction.

This commit ensures that linestr_sv is properly cleaned up, if allocated.

The local variable linestr_sv was added by commit 009d90df4e17a415 in 2007,
to replace use of PL_linestr in S_parse_body(). However, that commit didn't
add any code to free linestr_sv at the end of S_parse_body(), meaning that
the SV sticks around until global destruction.

Subsequent code simplification possible by the removal of suidperl reveals
that linestr_sv is only needed for the '-x' option, so it's safe to avoid
allocating it up front. Additionally, during '-x' processing, Perl_sv_gets()
will upgrade the target SV to SVt_PV and allocate the string buffer as needed,
so there's no need to pre-upgrade or pre-allocate the SV in S_parse_body().
This slightly reduces the amount of code.

name.  When two instances of the .t are run in parallel, as happens in

by the test for what happens when a file is non-existent, and hence
doesn't ever exist even transiently.
