[Bug-gnulib] regex.m4 patch to remove 0201 char from C source

I ran into trouble when fixing regex.m4 on some other issue, because
multi-gnome-terminal went haywire when trying to display a non-ASCII
character.  I suppose I could track down the bug in
multi-gnome-terminal, but that character shouldn't be in the C source
code anyway: the C source code is compiled in the C locale and the
weird character leads to unspecified behavior in that locale, and
anyway if we're going to have non-ASCII chars in source we should be
using UTF-8.  I installed the following obvious patch to work around
the problem.

Quite possibly this patch will be mungled by email, so if it does,
the patch merely replaces a single byte with octal code 201 with
the four bytes "\201".

        * regex.m4 (jm_INCLUDED_REGEX): Replace a single non-ASCII
        byte with "\201" to avoid glitches when editing that source file
        with multi-gnome-terminal.
