Fix use-after-free in glob when expanding ~user (bug 25414)

The value of `end_name' points into the value of `dirname', thus don't
deallocate the latter before the last use of the former.

Fix array overflow in backtrace on PowerPC (bug 25423)

When unwinding through a signal frame the backtrace function on PowerPC
didn't check array bounds when storing the frame address. Fixes commit
d400dcac5e ("PowerPC: fix backtrace to handle signal trampolines").

libio: Disable vtable validation for pre-2.1 interposed handles [BZ #25203]

Commit c402355dfa7807b8e0adb27c009135a7e2b9f1b0 ("libio: Disable
vtable validation in case of interposition [BZ #23313]") only covered
the interposable glibc 2.1 handles, in libio/stdfiles.c. The
parallel code in libio/oldstdfiles.c needs similar detection logic.

Fixes (again) commit db3476aff19b75c4fdefbe65fcd5f0a90588ba51
("libio: Implement vtable verification [BZ #20191]").

rtld: Check __libc_enable_secure before honoring LD_PREFER_MAP_32BIT_EXEC (CVE-2019-19126) [BZ #25204]

("Add Prefer_MAP_32BIT_EXEC to map executable pages with MAP_32BIT").

mips: Force RWX stack for hard-float builds that can run on pre-4.8 kernels

Linux/Mips kernels prior to 4.8 could potentially crash the user
process when doing FPU emulation while running on non-executable
user stack.

Currently, gcc doesn't emit .note.GNU-stack for mips, but that will
change in the future. To ensure that glibc can be used with such
future gcc, without silently resulting in binaries that might crash
in runtime, this patch forces RWX stack for all built objects if
configured to run against minimum kernel version less than 4.8.

 * sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/mips/Makefile
 (test-xfail-check-execstack):
 Move under mips-has-gnustack != yes.
 (CFLAGS-.o*, ASFLAGS-.o*): New rules.
 Apply -Wa,-execstack if mips-force-execstack == yes.
 * sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/mips/configure: Regenerated.
 * sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/mips/configure.ac
 (mips-force-execstack): New var.
 Set to yes for hard-float builds with minimum_kernel < 4.8.0
 or minimum_kernel not set at all.
 (mips-has-gnustack): New var.
 Use value of libc_cv_as_noexecstack
 if mips-force-execstack != yes, otherwise set to no.

Improve performance of memmem

This patch significantly improves performance of memmem using a novel
modified Horspool algorithm. Needles up to size 256 use a bad-character
table indexed by hashed pairs of characters to quickly skip past mismatches.
Long needles use a self-adapting filtering step to avoid comparing the whole
needle repeatedly.

By limiting the needle length to 256, the shift table only requires 8 bits
per entry, lowering preprocessing overhead and minimizing cache effects.
This limit also implies worst-case performance is linear.

Small needles up to size 2 use a dedicated linear search. Very long needles
use the Two-Way algorithm (to avoid increasing stack size or slowing down
the common case, inlining is disabled).

The performance gain is 6.6 times on English text on AArch64 using random
needles with average size 8.

Tested against GLIBC testsuite and randomized tests.

This patch significantly improves performance of strstr using a novel

The performance gain using the improved bench-strstr on Cortex-A72 is 5.8
times basic_strstr and 3.7 times twoway_strstr.

(https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnulib.git/tree/tests/test-strstr.c).

Fix strstr bug with huge needles (bug 23637)

The generic strstr in GLIBC 2.28 fails to match huge needles. The optimized
AVAILABLE macro reads ahead a large fixed amount to reduce the overhead of
repeatedly checking for the end of the string. However if the needle length
is larger than this, two_way_long_needle may confuse this as meaning the end
of the string and return NULL. This is fixed by adding the needle length to
the amount to read ahead.

 [BZ #23637]
 * string/test-strstr.c (pr23637): New function.
 (test_main): Add tests with longer needles.
 * string/strcasestr.c (AVAILABLE): Fix readahead distance.
 * string/strstr.c (AVAILABLE): Likewise.
