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

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

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,

Commit 5bec93be re-purposed the SvMAGIC field of hashes being freed, on
the grounds that (a) any magic had been freed, (b) the refcnt was zero, so
no-one else could mess with the hash.

Unfortunately in the non-threaded case, PMOPs for m?? regexes have a

Stop warning hint-checking from doing bad reads

Setting ${^WARNING_BITS} should not allow perl to read past the end of
a mallocked buffer.  Previously the internal warning buffer would be
copied straight from ${^WARNING_BITS}, so a short value assigned to
that variable would cause the internal warning-checking code to read
past the end of the buffer (probably not in actual practice, due to
malloc’s rounding up, but theoretically).  Now, the buffer that is
allocated for storing the warning bits is padded with nulls to make it
long enough to prevent bad reads.

The stored length is still the same as what was assigned to
${^WARNING_BITS}, so that the value that comes out of it is the same
length (UTF8-ness aside)--not that it makes much difference in prac-
tice though, since only should care about this.
