[perl #123059] [PATCH] free up CvPADLIST slot for XSUBs for future use
Message ID:
Blead applyable (not WIP anymore) patch attached.

To look for breakage I did a\%28 . Of all the modules, that didn't come up because of the MULTICALL backport macros, 3 specifically failed because of this patch. PadWalker, Scope::Upper, Devel::Size. Fixes for the 3 are sitting on my HD. I believe the process is, that I submit the CPAN patches when the patch is applied to blead, not before. From what I guess, half the CvPADLIST using modules CvPADLIST C syntax error on blead due the new padlist API where padlists aren't AV *s. I am not fixing those modules if they won't compile on 5.21.2. Also 1/4 of the modules C syntax error due to PL_sv_objcount not being found (again, not my backcompat breakage, so I am not fixing it). I've attached a summary that details each match from CPAN grep and its determination in relationship to removing CvPADLIST from XSUBs.
