journalctl: make matching optionally case sensitive
Case sensitive or case insensitive matching can be requested using --case-sensitive[=yes|no]. Unless specified, matching is case sensitive if the pattern contains any uppercase letters, and case insensitive otherwise. This matches what forward-search does in emacs, and recently also --ignore-case in less. This works surprisingly well, because usually when one is wants to do case-sensitive matching, the pattern is usually camel-cased. In the less frequent case when case-sensitive matching is required with an all-lowercase pattern, --case-sensitive can be used to override the automatic logic.
