[PATCH v2 00/12] posix: glob/fnmatch fixes and refactor

This patchset main target is to remove alloca usage on glob and
fnmatch by using a specialized dynarray for C strings (struct
char_array) along with already in place scratch_buffer and

It does not change any glob semantics, only internal glob buffer
management.  It also does not solve the potential stack overflow
due recursive allocation from wildcard in patterns [1] (although
an option would be go to pure dynamic char_array for this case).

I have added the fnmatch and getlogin_r on this series because
glob uses them internally.
