[rrd-developers] RFC: [PATCH] Portability by avoiding PATH_MAX

Here are updated patches for rrdtool/rrd_client.c and
rrdtool/rrd_daemon.c. We had some discussions in August last year. I
created a branch and the diffs are against latest git. I've run the
code, especially rrd_daemon with valgrind under Linux, but need some
help to check that also rrd_client works OK (maybe rrd_daemon too). Can
you help me with test cases to run the execute the code modified paths.
I know one application using rrdtool, lm-sensors (build-dependency on
librrd2-dev), but am not sure my computers have the sensors to be a good
test case.

Note that the modified functions get_path() and get_abs_path() are
static, so they don't change the API.
