So how about starting stupidly simple?  You can test it everywhere, it
just needs libpcre2.  It works without that library as well (tested with
"make USE_LIBPCRE= USE_LIBPCRE2= test"), but doesn't allocate anything
in that case, of course.  The character tables leak fix should be safe
on top.  If you detect performance issues then we can address them in
additional patches.

Subject: [PATCH] grep: use xmalloc() for all PCRE2 allocations

Build a PCRE2 global custom context when compiling a pattern and use it
to tell the library to use xmalloc() for allocations.  This provides
consistent out-of-memory handling and makes sure it uses a custom
allocator, e.g. with USE_NED_ALLOCATOR.

The function names are ridiculously long, I tried to stay within 80
characters per line but gave up in the end and just kept going without
line breaks.  Fits the "stupidly simple" approach..
