I should have mentioned it, but with the current Debian testing version
(mawk 1.3.3-15) and my patch, I get a byte-for-byte identical
inat-tables.c to what I get with the unpatched kernel and gawk
1:3.1.6.dfsg-4.

I'm not sure how likely all this is to change in the future, but it's
hard for me to see a sane reason why eg [:lower:] and a-z would be
different for this use.
