Status: Still Failing

Message: build_SYS_str_reasons: Fix a crash caused by overlong locales

The 4 kB SPACE_SYS_STR_REASONS in crypto/err/err.c isn't enough for some locales.
The Russian locales consume 6856 bytes, Ukrainian even 7000.

build_SYS_str_reasons() contains an overflow check:

if (cnt > sizeof(strerror_pool))
    cnt = sizeof(strerror_pool);

But since commit 9f15e5b911ba6053e09578f190354568e01c07d7 it no longer
works as cnt is incremented once more after the condition.

cnt greater than sizeof(strerror_pool) results in an unbounded
OPENSSL_strlcpy() in openssl_strerror_r(), eventually causing a crash.

When the first received error string was empty or contained only
spaces, cur would move in front of the start of the strerror_pool.

Also don't call openssl_strerror_r when the pool is full.
