    bpo-40549: Convert posixmodule.c to multiphase init (GH-19982)
    Convert posixmodule.c ("posix" or "nt" module) to the multiphase
    initialization (PEP 489).
    * Create the module using PyModuleDef_Init().
    * Create ScandirIteratorType and DirEntryType with the new
      PyType_FromModuleAndSpec() (PEP 573)
    * Get the module state from ScandirIteratorType and DirEntryType with
      the new PyType_GetModule() (PEP 573)
    * Pass module to functions which access the module state.
    * convert_sched_param() gets a new module parameter. It is now called
      directly since Argument Clinic doesn't support passing the module
      to an argument converter callback.
    * Remove _posixstate_global macro.
