    [MERGE] tweak in-place branch of SAVEt_CLEARSV
    clean up the code that clears lexical vars on scope exit; chiefly, wrap
    all the individual 'unusual case' flag tests in a single big test of the
    union of all such flags, so that simple lexical vars skip all the tests.

It reduces the object size of Perl_leave_scope() by 97 bytes on x86_64,
and as usual, benchmarks are just noise.

In England there is a special word which means the last sunshine
of the summer. That word is "spring".
