Change the setup of the "pcre2_general_context" to happen per-thread
in compile_pcre2_pattern() instead of in grep_init(), as happens with
all the rest of the pcre2_* members of the grep_pat structure.

As noted in the preceding commit the approach 513f2b0bbd4 (grep: make
PCRE2 aware of custom allocator, 2019-10-16) took to allocate the
pcre2_general_context seems to have been initially based on a
misunderstanding of how PCREv2 memory allocation works.

This approach of creating a global context is just added complexity
for almost zero gain. On my system it's 24 bytes saved per-thread, for
context PCREv2 will then go on to some kilobytes for its own
thread-local state.

As noted in 6d423dd542f (grep: don't redundantly compile throwaway
patterns under threading, 2017-05-25) the grep code is intentionally
not trying to micro-optimize allocations by e.g. sharing some PCREv2
structures globally, while making others thread-local.

So let's remove this special case and make all of them thread-local
for simplicity again.

See also the discussion in 94da9193a6 (grep: add support for PCRE v2,
2017-06-01) about thread safety, and Johannes's comments[1] to the
effect that we should be doing what this patch is doing.
