Fix assorted integer-overflow hazards in varbit.c.
bitshiftright() and bitshiftleft() would recursively call each other
infinitely if the user passed INT_MIN for the shift amount, due to integer
overflow in negating the shift amount. To fix, clamp to -VARBITMAXLEN.
That doesn't change the results since any shift distance larger than the
input bit string's length produces an all-zeroes result.
Also fix some places that seemed inadequately paranoid about input typmods
exceeding VARBITMAXLEN. While a typmod accepted by anybit_typmodin() will
certainly be much less than that, at least some of these spots are
reachable with user-chosen integer values.
