Why do we need to expose __mb_sb_limit at all even in 7.x or HEAD?
It doesn't seem like it can be anything greater than _CACHED_RUNES,
so why don't we always just ensure that __runetype, __maplower,
etc are all sized appropriately.  In the error case (_c >= 
__mb_sb_limit), we just return 0 anyways, so if unused __runetype[]
were initialized to 0 in the implementation for unused entries, this 
__sbmaskrune() could become:

 	__sbmaskrune(__ct_rune_t _c, unsigned long _f)
 		return (_c < 0 || _c >= _CACHED_RUNES) ? 0 :
 		    _CurrentRuneLocale->__runetype[_c] & _f;
