[PATCH] Fix NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT to fully disable JIT

From: Charles Bailey <cbailey32@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

If you have a pcre1 library which is compiled with JIT enabled then
PCRE_STUDY_JIT_COMPILE will be defined whether or not the
NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT configuration is set.

This means that we enable JIT functionality when calling pcre_study
even if NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT has been explicitly set and we just use plain
pcre_exec later.

Fix this by using own macro (GIT_PCRE_STUDY_JIT_COMPILE) which we set to
PCRE_STUDY_JIT_COMPILE only if NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT is not set and define to
0 otherwise, as before.

I was bisecting an issue with the PCRE support that was causing a test
suite failure on our Solaris builds and reached fbaceaac47 ("grep: add
support for the PCRE v1 JIT API"). It appeared to be a misaligned memory
access somewhere inside the libpcre code. I tried disabling the use of
JIT with NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT but it turned out that even with this set we
were still triggering the JIT code path in the call to pcre_study.

Yes, we probably should fix our PCRE1 library build on Solaris or move
to PCRE2, but really NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT should have prevented us from
triggering this crash.
