As noted in [1] when I originally added this test in [2] the test was
completely broken as it lacked a redirect[3]. I now think this whole
thing is overly fragile. Let's only test if we have a segfault here.

Before this the first test's "test_cmp" was pretty meaningless. We
were only testing if PCREv2 was so broken that it would spew out
something completely unrelated on stdout, which isn't very plausible.

In the second test we're relying on PCREv2 forever holding to the
current behavior of the PCRE_UTF8 flag, as opposed to learning some
optimistic graceful fallback to PCRE2_MATCH_INVALID_UTF in the
future. If that happens having this test broken under bisecting would

A follow-up commit will actually test this case in a meaningful way
under the PCRE2_MATCH_INVALID_UTF flag. Let's run this one
unconditionally, and just make sure we don't segfault.
