    and adapted for U-Boot environment.
    
    Used to implement regex operations on environment variables.
    Code size is ~ 3.5 KiB on PPC.
    
    To enable this code, define the  CONFIG_REGEX  option in your board
    config file.
    
    Note:  There are more recent versions of the SLRE library available at
    http://slre.googlecode.com ; unfortunately, the new code has a heavily
    reorked API which makes it less usable for our purposes:
    - the return code is strings, which are more difficult to process
    - we don't get any information any more which sub-string of the data
      was matched by the given regex
    - it is much more cumbersome to work with arbitrary expressions, where
      for example the number of substrings for capturing are not known at
      compile time
    Also, there does not seem to be any real changes or improvements of
    the functionality.
    
    Because of this, we deliberately stick with the older code.
    
    Note 2: the test code (built when SLRE_TEST is defined) was modified
    to allow for more extensive testing; now we can test the regexp
    matching on all lines on a text file (instead of the whole data in the
    file as a single block).
