Please rebase onto `main` to get a clean CI run, and ship it. Thanks!

> During runtime we never actually allocate `__min_cap` bytes, so it's OK that we return an even number in this case. It only exists for checking if the string fits in SSO or is in SSO mode AFAICT. (This should probably be changed at some point) During constant evaluation we have to return an odd number to make the allocation size even, otherwise we save garbage in the capacity member. That's why the other way to fix the bug was saving the actual capacity.
Ok. As discussed offline, let's land this as-is, but let's also make a follow-up patch that tries to fix places that assume `__min_cap - 1` is returned when the string fits in the SSO, so we can remove this `if` and always return `static_cast<size_type>(__min_cap);`.
