Junio's suggestion in the linked E-Mail was to make this a "const char *".

Narrowly, I don't see why not just add a "const" to the "struct strbuf
*" instead.

But less narrowly if we're not going to change it why malloc a new one
at all? Can't we just use the "const char *" passed into
tr2tls_create_self(), and for the "th%02d:" case have the code that's
formatting it handle that case?

I.e. have the things that use it as a "%s" now call a function that
formats things as a function of the "ctx->thread_id" (which may be 0)
and limit it by TR2_MAX_THREAD_NAME?
