Very sorry for update at the last moment.
But after the update, we should no need to touch it in the future, so I think it's worthy. 

Please review the last commit in PR 21740, the previous commits have not been changed.
IMO if use a Git client such as TortoiseGit, reviewing may be more convenient. 

The changes:

1, Move `Modules/blocks_output_buffer.h` to `Include/internal/pycore_blocks_output_buffer.h`
Keep the `Modules` folder clean.

2, Ask the user to initialize the struct instance like this, and use assertions to check it:
    _BlocksOutputBuffer buffer = {.list = NULL};

Then no longer worry about whether buffer.list is uninitialized in error handling.
There is an extra assignment, but it's beneficial to long-term code maintenance.

3, Change the type of BUFFER_BLOCK_SIZE from `int` to `Py_ssize_t`.
The core code can remove a few type casts.

4, These functions return allocated size on success, return -1 on failure:
If the code is used in other sites, this API is simpler.

5, All functions are decorated with `inline`.
If the compiler is smart enough, it's possible to eliminate some code when `max_length` is constant and < 0.
