pathspec: remove the deprecated get_pathspec function
Now that all callers of the old 'get_pathspec' interface have been migrated to use the new pathspec struct interface it can be removed from the codebase. Since there are no more users of the '_raw' field in the pathspec struct it can also be removed. This patch also removes the old functionality of modifying the const char **argv array that was passed into parse_pathspec. Instead the constructed 'match' string (which is a pathspec element with the prefix prepended) is only stored in its corresponding pathspec_item entry.
