I was mistaken about this. re_* is in the reserved namespace, so we
can simply use re_pattern_buffer unconditionally. I'll change it.

I'm going to try to fix this too. regoff_t can just be defined with
the _Addr macro from alltypes.h, but I'd rather avoid spreading use of
that macro, which is intended to be alltypes-internal, so I'll
probably just move regoff_t itself into alltypes.
