Update.
* posix/tst-fnmatch.input: Add test case for FNM_PERIOD handling with FNM_EXTMATCH. * posix/fnmatch_loop.c: Optimize handling of ?() and @(). * posix/fnmatch.c: Define STRLEN and STRCAT appropriately. * posix/Versions [libc] (GLIBC_2.2.3): Add fnmatch. * posix/fnmatch.c: Define with new default version GLIBC_2.2.3 to avoid running binaries with libc versions without FNM_EXTMATCH support. * include/wchar.h: Add prototype for __wcscat. * wcsmbs/wcscat.c: Define __wcscat and make wcscat weak alias.
