[blead-473-g3b333d0] vms stat patches (take 2)

Conversion of Perl_my_time() to tolerate a null thread context, per 
Craig Berry's recommendation.

Conversion of Perl_flex_stat_int() to tolerate a null thread context, 
and updates to better handle Unix Format or Extended File System 
character sets.

vms_fid_to_name() now understands stat/lstat for properly handling 
symbolic links, and uses a similar algorithm as Perl_flex_stat_int() for 
consistency.  Will now optionally return the mode bits from the stat 
operation.

Next step to do:  Routines that call either Perl_flex_stat_int, or 
vms_fid_to_name, should now no longer need to call vmsify or flex_stat() 
following those calls.
