to deal with the fact that the public headers may be used with pre-c99
compilers, __restrict is used in place of restrict, and defined
appropriately for any supported compiler. we also avoid the form
[restrict] since older versions of gcc rejected it due to a bug in the
original c99 standard, and instead use the form *restrict.
POSIX is unclear on whether it should, but all historical
implementations seem to behave this way, and it seems more useful to
patch by sh4rm4
basically there are 3 choices for how to implement this variable-size
1. C99 flexible array member: breaks using dirent.h with pre-C99 compiler.
2. old way: length-1 string: generates array bounds warnings in caller.
3. new way: length-NAME_MAX string. no problems, simplifies all code.
of course the usable part in the pointer returned by readdir might be
shorter than NAME_MAX+1 bytes, but that is allowed by the standard and
doesn't hurt anything.
this actually inadvertently disallows some valid patterns with
redundant / or * characters, but it's better than allowing unbounded
eventually i'll write code to move the pattern to the stack and
eliminate redundancy to ensure that it fits in PATH_MAX at the
beginning of glob. this would also allow it to be modified in place
for passing to fnmatch rather than copied at each level of recursion.
