[patch@27638] Enable standard stat for VMS >=8.2
Message ID:
This patch sets up Perl on OpenVMS when built for largefile support on 
OpenVMS 8.2 Alpha or Integrity to use a standard compliant stat structure.

The major impact of this is that the st_dev and st_ino values will be 
accurate for use with other programs on the same system instead of being 
unique values to Perl. has been modified to enable this feature.

vms/vmsish.h has a typo fixed in it for this feature.

vms/vms.c has been updated to use this feature, and this also found a 
case where the filename buffers in safe_popen were smaller than what 
could contain a filename on an ODS-5 volume.
