Changes in gnulib since 2.21.78-7da30:

* gnulib 5513b40...956fa54 (50):

I'm testing on Debian stretch, with GCC 5.2 -- on a default build, all tests pass (including check-expensive), but adding 'CFLAGS=-fsanitize=address' results in a lot of test failures. After some investigation I found this was due to it detecting memory leaks (though it was a bit tricky to determine that because the detection happened after clean_up_stdout() closed stderr, so the actual report took a bit of fishing to extract).

With the attached patch applied all the grep tests pass, though the gnulib-tests suite still hits 12 failures (gnulib-tests/test-suite.log also attached) -- I could perhaps look into those myself, but I figure someone more familiar with the codebase can probably fix them much more quickly than I could.
