I'm not necessarily opposed to switching to making the DFA
default before 3.2. But at the moment the conservative
policy is to support them both. This means test building
both with and without the DFA regularly and running the
regressions to make sure it doesn't get broke again. 

I think we should rename global_matchpat() back to
matchpat(). Currently there's no function with that
name anywhere in the code.
