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;
    setlocale(LC_MESSAGES, '');

    loads threads::lite and creates a new thread/interpreter which
    initializes PL_AboveLatin1 to a SV owned by the new interpreter

    PL_AboveLatin1 is now invalid

    main interpreter uses a regexp that relies on PL_AboveLatin1, dies

By making these interpreter level variables, this is avoided.  There is
extra copying, but it is just the SV headers, as the real data is kept
as static C arrays.

Properly handle filled /il regnodes and multi-char folds

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

should match match a LATIN SHARP S.  Until this commit, it wouldn't.
The commit just extends the current mechanism used in this situation (of
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
handle the UTF-8 case.

Add ANYOFHs regnode

This node is like ANYOFHb, but is used when more than one leading byte
is the same in all the matched code points.

ANYOFHb is used to avoid having to convert from UTF-8 to code point for
something that won't match.  It checks that the first byte in the UTF-8
encoded target is the desired one, thus ruling out most of the possible
code points.

But for higher code points that require longer UTF-8 sequences, many
many non-matching code points pass this filter.  Its almost 200K that it
is ineffective for for code points above 0xFFFF.

This commit creates a new node type that addresses this problem.
Instead of a single byte, it stores as many leading bytes that are the
same for all code points that match the class.  For many classes, that
will cut down the number of possible false positives by a huge amount
before having to convert to code point to make the final determination.

This regnode adds a UTF-8 string at the end.  It is still much smaller,
even in the rare worst case, than a plain ANYOF node because the maximum
string length, 15 bytes, is still shorter than the 32-byte bitmap that
is present in a plain ANYOF.  Most of the time the added string will
instead be at most 4 bytes.
