bug#16818: Acknowledgement (Undo in region after markers in undo history

At the end is a patch to implement this. I wrote the marker-tests to
make sure I didn't break anything too badly, they pass with or without
the rest of the patch. The new undo-test-mark-adjustment implements
the recipe of this bug report. It fails with current trunk and passes
with the patch.

Of the original symptoms of this bug report, the patch solves:

>> Strangely, the selection mark at BOL moves forward three chars

but not:

>> * Unexpectedly, "aaa" is not reinserted back into the buffer
> is due to the selection mark and another marker occupying their own

The selection mark is no longer "in the way" on the pending-undo-list,
but the another marker still is. It only is when the recipe is carried
out manually apparently, because the marker is not there when the
recipe is carried out in the undo-test-mark-adjustment. IOW, the ERT
test passes the same test case that fails when carried out manually.

Debugging the C sources, I find the offending marker in the
pending-undo-list is first created at the following C and Lisp
backtraces:

Following the redisplay code indicated, it looks like the same overlay
object is reused for subsequent region selections. If so, the
explanation is similar as for the mark: the marker of the
internal-region-overlay is the same under eq when "bbb" is selected
and deleted as when the line formerly containing "aaa" is selected
followed by undo in region. The marker adjustment is incorrectly found
because the marker moved, and consequently the "aaa" undo record is
not found. Would the solution be analogous as for the mark: make a new
overlay for each new region selection?

Finally, here's the patch that fixes this problem wrt the mark:
