firestring_realloc - realloc(3) with internal result checking
#include <firestring.h> -lfirestring void *firestring_realloc(void *old, const size_t new)
firestring_realloc() acts exactly like realloc(3) except that it detects realloc failures, prints an error and exit(3) with exit status EXIT_FAILURE. In most programs, realloc failures are unrecoverable, and this is the preferred behaviour.
If firestring_realloc() returns, it always returns a string of new bytes containing the data from old at the beginning. It never returns NULL.
