verify_signed_buffer: drop pbuf variable
If our caller gave us a non-NULL gpg_status parameter, we write the gpg status into their strbuf. If they didn't, then we write it to a temporary local strbuf (since we still need to look at it). The variable "pbuf" adds an extra layer of indirection so that the rest of the function can just access whichever is appropriate. However, the name "pbuf" isn't very descriptive, and it's easy to get confused about what is supposed to be in it (especially because we are reading both "status" and "output" from gpg). Rather than give it a more descriptive name, we can just use gpg_status as our indirection pointer. Either it points to the caller's input, or we can point it directly to our temporary buffer.
