[PATCH] Make purecopy create hash tables properly

From: Vibhav Pant
Subject: [PATCH] Make purecopy create hash tables properly
Date: Sat, 28 Jan 2017 00:07:05 +0530

As of now, hash tables are purecopied by getting XVECTOR(table),
and copying the contents to pure-alloced memory[0]. This resulted
in purecopy returning a vector consisting of mostly nil and random numbers[1].

As the current lisp code doesn't use printed hash tables anywhere, this
never caused a problem while dumping emacs. However, using printed
hash tables in any code thats loaded in temacs causes the keys and values
of the table to change [2], or segfaults temacs altogether [3].

The following patch attempts to fix this, by adding a make_pure_hash_table
function that returns a copy of the provided Lisp_Hash_Table* value allocated
in pure space. From my testing, this both the issues with printed hash tables
in temacs, although I am not sure about the repercussions of blindly copying
the header (vectorlike_header) from one Lisp_Hash_Table to another. Any
feedback on this would be appreciated, as I would like to get this into master
to continue work on byte-switch [4], which makes use of printed hash tables
in the constant vector of bytecode functions.

I'm not well versed with Emacs internals, apologies if anything above was
