[PATCH v1 1/2] path.c: char is not (always) signed




From: Torsten Bögershausen <tboegi@xxxxxx>

If a "char" in C is signed or unsigned is not specified, because it is
out of tradition "implementation dependent".
Therefore constructs like "if (name[i] < 0)" are not portable,
use "if (name[i] & 0x80)" instead.

Detected by "gcc (Raspbian 6.3.0-18+rpi1+deb9u1) 6.3.0 20170516" when
setting
DEVELOPER = 1
DEVOPTS = extra-all
