os.system() doesn't support bytes, bytearray not str containing surrogates.

Attached patch uses PyUnicode_FSConverter, bytes2str and release_bytes in (the non-Windows version of) os.system() to support all of this. It locks the buffer because os.system() releases the GIL when calling system().

See also #8391 (os.execvpe env) and #8393 (subprocess cwd).

The buildbots look happy: backported to 3.1 as r80110.
