change the current O(n) lookup to O(1) based on the machinery
described in "How To Write Shared Libraries" (Appendix B).
libc.h was intended to be a header for access to global libc state and
related interfaces, but ended up included all over the place because
it was the way to get the weak_alias macro. most of the inclusions
removed here are places where weak_alias was needed. a few were
recently introduced for hidden. some go all the way back to when
libc.h defined CANCELPT_BEGIN and _END, and all (wrongly implemented)
cancellation points had to include it.
remaining spurious users are mostly callers of the LOCK/UNLOCK macros
and files that use the LFS64 macro to define the awful *64 aliases.
in a few places, new inclusion of libc.h is added because several
internal headers no longer implicitly include libc.h.
declarations for __lockfile and __unlockfile are moved from libc.h to
stdio_impl.h so that the latter does not need libc.h. putting them in
libc.h made no sense at all, since the macros in stdio_impl.h are
needed to use them correctly anyway.
for LC_MESSAGES, translation of strerror and similar literal message
functions is supported. for messages in other places (particularly the
dynamic linker) that use format strings, translation is not yet
supported. in order to make it possible and safe, such messages will
need to be refactored to separate the textual content from the format.
for LC_TIME, the day and month names and strftime-style format strings
provided by nl_langinfo are supported for translation. however there
may be limitations, as some of the original C-locale nl_langinfo
strings are non-unique and thus perhaps non-suitable as keys.
overall, the locale support activated by this commit should not be
seen as complete and polished but as a basis for beginning to test
locale functionality and implement locales.
if we ever encounter other targets where error codes don't fit in the
8-bit range, the table should probably just be bumped to 16-bit, but
for now I don't want to increase the table size on all archs just
because of a bug in the mips abi.
