compat/snprintf: don't look at va_list twice
If you define SNPRINTF_RETURNS_BOGUS, we use a special git_vsnprintf wrapper assumes that vsnprintf returns "-1" instead of the number of characters that you would need to store the result. To do this, it invokes vsnprintf multiple times, growing a heap buffer until we have enough space to hold the result. However, this means we evaluate the va_list parameter multiple times, which is generally a bad thing (it may be modified by calls to vsnprintf, yielding undefined behavior). Instead, we must va_copy it and hand the copy to vsnprintf, so we always have a pristine va_list.
