(CVE-2010-1447 , CVE-2010-1168)

This update fixes this problem. Also the following bugs
were fixed:
- fix tell cornercase [bnc#596167]
- fix regex memory leak [bnc#557636]
- also run h2ph on /usr/include/linux [bnc#603840]
- backport h2ph include fix from 5.12.0 [bnc#601242]
- fix segfault when using regexpes in threaded apps
- backport upstream fixes for POSIX module to avoid clashes
with Fcntl [bnc#446098], [bnc#515948]
- backport upstream fix for ISA assertion failure
- move unicode files from perl-doc to perl, otherwise some
perl modules will not work
