After bpo34784, there are still two more cases of statically allocated types (DirEntryType & ScandirIteratorType). These should also be heap allocated to make posixmodule fully compatible with PEP384.

Just curious... how is PEP 384 relevant to modules insides CPython itself? I thought that this only mattered for external packages. Do you expect people to use a 3.7-compiled posixmodule.c on Python 3.8?

@Jeroen, see Dino's expalantion in (relative to the "random" module).

bpo-35381 Remove all static state from posixmodule (GH-15892)

The module still uses tp_new directly, so it's not limited to only stable ABI, but that's for another issue.

Thanks for the contribution!

This change introduced a reference leak: bpo-38803 "test_wait3 and test_wait4 leaked references on x86 Gentoo Refleaks 3.x".

This issue introduced a regression: bpo-39395 "The os module should unset() environment variable at exit".
