entry.c: convert checkout_entry to use strbuf
The old code does not do boundary check so any paths longer than PATH_MAX can cause buffer overflow. Replace it with strbuf to handle paths of arbitrary length. The OS may reject if the path is too long though. But in that case we report the cause (e.g. name too long) and usually move on to checking out the next entry.
