UnmarshalStream: Look for encoding information in all instance variables #1345

Unfortunately, I think the solution to issue #939 did not go far enough. When unmarshaling a string, MRI actually checks every instance variable for encoding information and uses the last encoding it found.

We can see this from r_ivar in MRI 2.0.0p353 and 1.9.3p484:

I also checked the latest version of MRI's master branch.

Here is some example code where we unmarshal a string and the encoding is specified as UTF-16BE in the second instance variable:

puts Marshal.load("\x04\x08I\"\x06a\x07:\x07@aT:\x0Dencoding\"\x0DUTF-16BE").encoding

Here is a shell session showing how MRI respects the encoding but JRuby does not, giving the string an encoding of ASCII-8BIT:

$ jruby -v && jruby pr2_repro.rb
jruby 1.7.9 (1.9.3p392) 2013-12-06 87b108a on Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM
1.7.0_45-b18 [Windows 8-amd64]
$ source use_mri2.sh
$ ruby -v && ruby pr2_repro.rb
ruby 2.0.0p0 (2013-02-24) [x64-mingw32]

The code in this pull request fixes this issue. All I did was remove the "i==0" condition in defaultVariablesUnmarshal and adjusted the indentation accordingly.

The reason I am touching this code is because I plan to refactor the encoding-determination logic out of it into another method so I can use it for symbols for issue #1329, or maybe I will just call the existing method.

… in all the instance variables, and only use the last one. All I did was remove the "i==0" condition in defaultVariablesUnmarshal and adjust the indentation accordingly.

Looks good, I'll merge.
