pool_alloc_filespec() was written so that the code when pool != NULL
mimicked the code from alloc_filespec(), which including allocating
enough extra space for the path and then copying it.  However, the path
passed to pool_alloc_filespec() is always going to already be in the
same memory pool, so we may as well reuse it instead of copying it.

For the testcases mentioned in commit 557ac0350d ("merge-ort: begin
performance work; instrument with trace2_region_* calls", 2020-10-28),
this change improves the performance as follows:

                            Before                  After
    no-renames:       198.5 ms ±  3.4 ms     198.3 ms ±  2.9 ms
    mega-renames:     679.1 ms ±  5.6 ms     661.8 ms ±  5.9 ms
    just-one-mega:    271.9 ms ±  2.8 ms     264.6 ms ±  2.5 ms
