readline: Fix buffer overrun on re-add to history
readline_hist_add() moves the history entry to the end of history. It uses memmove() to move rs->history[idx + 1..] to rs->history[idx..]. However, its size argument is off by two array elements, so it writes one element beyond rs->history, and reads two. On my system, this clobbers rs->hist_entry and the hole right after it. Since the function assigns to rs->hist_entry in time, the bug has no ill effects for me. Spotted by Coverity.
