Available since pcre-8.20 (2011), and improved in pcre-8.32 (2012),
PCRE_STUDY_JIT_COMPILE can greatly speed up repeated execution of PCRE
lighttpd continues to use pcre_exec() instead of pcre_jit_exec(),
even though doing so does not realize all of the performance increase
potentially available with PCRE_STUDY_JIT_COMPILE and pcre_jit_exec().
pcre_jit_exec() is available with PCRE 8.32 and later, if PCRE is
compiled with --enable-jit, but lighttpd does not currently use
pcre_jit_exec() since the PCRE library might not have been compiled
with --enable-jit (though this could be solved with a weak symbol).
Similarly, lighttpd does not currently configure the pcre_jit_stack.
(Using pcre_jit_exec() may be revisited in the future.)
"add support for pcre JIT"
tighten struct data_config and config_cond_info
create config key at startup and reuse for debug/trace
separate routine for configparser_parse_condition()
separate routine for configparser_parse_else_condition()
(expansion of buffer_string_lenth() inline function and CONST_BUF_LEN()
macro, which always check for NULL, appears to cause the analyzer to
believe that a pointer might be NULL in cases where it otherwise can
not be NULL)
mark array_get_index() as hot, rewrite to be pure and return sorted pos
mark routines as pure, as appropriate
mark routines as cold if used only at startup for config processing
mark params const, as appropriate
array_get_buf_ptr() for modifiable value buffer after insert into array
uint32_t used and size members instead of size_t
remove a->unique_ndx member; simply add to end of array for value lists
remove du->is_index_key member; simply check buffer_is_empty(du->key)
array_insert_key_value() used to be a hint that lookup could be skipped,
but the state from array_get_index() is now saved and reused internally,
so the distinction is no longer needed. Use array_set_key_value().
quickly clear buffer instead of buffer_string_set_length(b, 0) or
buffer_reset(b). Avoids free() of large buffers about to be reused,
or buffers that are module-scoped, persistent, and reused.
(buffer_reset() should still be used with buffers in connection *con
when the data in the buffers is supplied by external, untrusted source)
provide standard types in first.h instead of base.h
provide lighttpd types in base_decls.h instead of settings.h
reduce headers exposed by headers for core data structures
do not expose <pcre.h> or <stdlib.h> in headers
move stat_cache_entry to stat_cache.h
reduce use of "server.h" and "base.h" in headers
- add new "skip" result to mark conditions that didn't actually get
evaluated to false but just skipped because the preconditions failed.
- add "local_result" for each cache entry to remember whether the
condition itself matched (not including the preconditions).
this can be reused after a cache reset if the condition itself was not
reset, but the preconditions were
- clear result of subtree (children and else-branches) when clearing a

* remove unused structs and functions
* change return type from int to void for many functions,
as the return value (indicating error/success) was never checked,
and the function would only fail on programming errors and not on
invalid input; changed functions to use force_assert instead of
returning an error.
* all "len" parameters now are the real size of the memory to be read.
the length of strings is given always without the terminating 0.
* the "buffer" struct still counts the terminating 0 in ->used,
provide buffer_string_length() to get the length of a string in a
unset config "strings" have used == 0, which is used in some places
to distinguish unset values from "" (empty string) values.
* most buffer usages should now use it as string container.
* optimise some buffer copying by "moving" data to other buffers
* use (u)intmax_t for generic int-to-string functions
* remove unused enum values: UNUSED_CHUNK, ENCODING_UNSET
* converted BUFFER_APPEND_SLASH to inline function (no macro feature
* refactor: create chunkqueue_steal: moving (partial) chunks into another
* http_chunk: added separate function to terminate chunked body instead of
magic handling in http_chunk_append_mem().
http_chunk_append_* now handle empty chunks, and never terminate the
