    debuginfod: PR27711 - Use -I/-X regexes during groom phase

    The debuginfod -I/-X regexes operate during traversal to identify
    those files in need of scanning.  The regexes are not used during
    grooming.  This means that if from run to run, the regex changes so
    that formerly indexed files are excluded from traversal, the data is
    still retained in the index.

    This is both good and bad.  On one hand, if the underlying data is
    still available, grooming will preserve the data, and let clients ask
    for it.  On the other hand, if the growing index size is a problem,
    and one wishes to age no-longer-regex-matching index data out, there
    is no way.

    Let's add a debuginfod flag to use regexes during grooming.
    Specifically, in groom(), where the stat() test exists, also check
    for regex matching as in scan_source_paths().  Treat failure of the
    regex the same way as though the file didn't exist.
