Win32: don't copy the environment twice when spawning child processes
When spawning child processes via start_command(), the environment and all environment entries are copied twice. First by make_augmented_environ / copy_environ to merge with child_process.env. Then a second time by make_environment_block to create a sorted environment block string as required by CreateProcess. Move the merge logic to make_environment_block so that we only need to copy the environment once. This changes semantics of the env parameter: it now expects a delta (such as child_process.env) rather than a full environment. This is not a problem as the parameter is only used by start_command() (all other callers previously passed char **environ, and now pass NULL). The merge logic no longer xstrdup()s the environment strings, so do_putenv must not free them. Add a parameter to distinguish this from normal putenv. Remove the now unused make_augmented_environ / free_environ API. Signed-off-by: Karsten Blees <firstname.lastname@example.org>
