compat/win32: correct for incorrect compiler warning

The 'win build' job of our CI build is failing with the following error:

compat/win32/syslog.c: In function 'syslog':
compat/win32/syslog.c:53:17: error: pointer 'pos' may be used after \
				    'realloc' [-Werror=use-after-free]
   53 |                 memmove(pos + 2, pos + 1, strlen(pos));
    CC compat/poll/poll.o
      |                 ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compat/win32/syslog.c:47:23: note: call to 'realloc' here
   47 |                 str = realloc(str, st_add(++str_len, 1));
      |                       ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

However, between this realloc() and the use we have a line that resets
the value of 'pos'. Thus, this error is incorrect. It is likely due to a
new version of the compiler on the CI machines.

Instead of waiting for a new compiler, create a new variable to avoid
this error.
