bug#23848: sed not using unlocked_stdio

sed 4.2.2

Most reading and writing is done in utils.c, but this does not include
sed.h or the "unlocked-io.h" header.

ltrace sed '' < <(seq 1 100)

Shows lots of calls to the locked system calls.

Adding include "sed.h" in utils.c and recompling and re-running ltrace
shows the _unlocked() variants being used.

This improves the performance when reading the output of seq 1 1e8 from 9.5
seconds to 6.4 seconds. ie:

time sed '' < seq.1e8 >/dev/null

(on ubuntu 16.04 with skylake processor)
