I prefer DFA matcher to KWset matcher due to low memory. grep -F is
offen used for big patterns. DFA has a risk which memory is exhausted
for them. I thank that so as far as possible grep -F should not use DFA

KWset does not support multibyte character, so we must exclude cases
that upper case of single byle character is multi-byte character.
