    Add uvchr_to_utf8_flags_msgs()
    This is propmpted by Encode's needs.  When called with the proper
    parameter, it returns any warnings instead of displaying them directly.

    Speed up UTF-8 validation checking on modern perls
    Perl 5.26 introduced infrastructure in the core that can be used by
    Encode to check UTF-8 stream validity much faster than before.
    It is not clear when or if this functionality will be backported into
    Devel::PPPort, in part because there is no one available currently who
    knows how to do it, and in part because it may be that everyone else
    relies on Encode, so it's not needed generally to be backported.
    This commit replaces the current scheme for checking UTF-8 validity if
    the infrastructure is availabe, by one in which normal processing
    doesn't require having to decode the UTF-8 into code points.  The
    copying of characters individually from the input to the output is
    changed to be a single operation for each entire span of valid input at
    Thus in the normal case, what ends up happening is a tight loop to
    check the validity, and then a memmove of the entire input to the
    output, then return.
    If an error is found, it copies all the valid input before the error,
    then handles the character in error, then positions to the next input
    position, and repeats the whole process starting from there.
    Thus, this does not need to know about the intricacies of UTF-8
    malformations, relying on the core to handle this.
    There are currently some problems with Encode on EBCDIC platforms.  The
    infrastructure is known to correctly work there, so I'm hopeful this
    will solve these portability issues.

    Encode/Encode.xs: Pull condition out of loop
    The value for this condition is known before the loop, so move it
    outside the loop.

    Encode/encode.h: Use system REPLACEMENT char if available
    On modern perls, there is a definition for the REPLACEMENT CHARACTER
    UTF-8 string.  Use this if available, as it is portable to EBCDIC, and
    this one isn't.

    Encode: White space only
    This correctly indents things in blocks, and removes trailing space
