  1. Storable: Support 5.12 first-class REGEXP

    importing 5.12 REGEXP into a old 5.10 perl not yet implemented and tested
      (REGEXP => PV + Magic)
    bumped Storable format bin_minor to 8.
    swapped SX_ERROR and SX_REGEXP because of baked SX_ERROR logic.
      Still has to think about the necessary support matrix
        2.22 |  2.23
        ERR  |  REG
        REG  |
        5.10 |  5.12
        PV+MG|  REGEXP
    in almost all directions, 4*2 = 8 possibilities.
    Maybe it's just better to freeze a REGEXP in the old
    PV+Magic format, so that older perls with newer storable
    files just work.
    There are apperently two different kinds of REGEXP/pv's.
    1. Standalone without a REGCOMP op pointing to the SV (without the
    PMf_COMPILETIME flag), so we have no op_pmflags to pass to CALLREGCOMP,
    and 2. the normal with OP, but we cannot support this. We have no association
    of the SV to the upper OP, only the other way round.
    Creating a standalone REGEXP does not create the necessary magic chain
    correctly yet, contrary to a REGCOMP op with REGEXP SV, as done in the B::C
    or Bytecode compiler.

  1. Explicitly set the location of cpanp-run-perl when under PERL_CORE

        CPANPLUS::Config checks 3 specific scenarios first
        when looking for cpanp-run-perl: parallel to cpanp,
        parallel to, or installed into a custom
        prefix like /tmp/foo. Only *THEN* does it check the
        the path.
        If the perl core is extracted to a directory that has
        cpanp-run-perl installed the same amount of 'uplevels'
        as the /tmp/foo prefix, we'll pull in the wrong script
        by accident.
        Since we set the path to cpanp-run-perl explicitily
        at the top of this script, it's best to update the config
        ourselves with a path lookup, rather than rely on its
        heuristics. Thanks to David Wheeler, Josh Jore and Vincent
        Pit for helping to track this down.

  1. Remove perl4-library deprecation warnings

    After the recent, long discussion about this topic and demonstrated
    cases where the deprecation warnings may actually *break* things, we
    agreed on IRC to push the "active" deprecation warnings to after 5.12.

    Subject: [PATCH] Remove deprecation warnings from perl4-era tools
    The libraries still have deprecation warnings in their comments but the
    mandatory run-time warnings are disabled until after 5.12.

  2. For evals, op_targ carry hint flags, which are pretty high when you're

    using feature or another (recent) pragma. And previously we had to care
    only about entereval, but now we can compile to entertry too.

    This change is a complement to 572558b.
    Arithmetic on null pointers isn't defined by the C standard, so it may crash even before entering the loop.
