Review request for mesos and Alex Clemmer.


Fix formatting of description.

Bugs: MESOS-6677 and MESOS-6722

Repository: mesos

Description (updated)

Returns `/var` on POSIX and (usually) `C:\ProgramData` on Windows. Uses Windows
COM API to look up correct location for persistent, app-local (but not per user)
variable data. Returns standard location on POSIX.

The addition of `os::var()` is a continuation of the fix in #54336. The correct
place for variable runtime data on Windows is not necessarily in `os::temp()`, but
in the analogous location `ProgramData`. Thus we need a platform-agnostic way to
refer to var.

The call to `ShGetKnownFolder` is not RAII because it is a C API, and the ATL
`CComHeapPtr` class is not used in this commit due to Windows header issues. Thus
the buffer allocated by the C API is freed immediately after the data is copied
into a `std::wstring`. Because the Windows API returns a UTF-16 string, and
Unicode characters are valid in Windows path names, we have to correctly convert
it to UTF-8 using `<codecvt>`.
