Mail::Header#charset is called pretty often during header parser work.
If there are large amount of headers #[] is pretty slow.

There is already @charset variable, but it doesn't speed up the charset method. This patch makes headers parsing faster by keeping @charset variable always up to date and speeding up the charset method .

Benchmark code:"X-SubscriberID: 345\n" * 100)


Result (with patch and without patch):

Running benchmark with current working tree
Checkout HEAD^
Running benchmark with HEAD^
Checkout to previous HEAD again
