Feature #4523: Kernel#require to return the path of the loaded file

It's very useful to be able to tell which actual file on disc was loaded following a call to require, without having to manually traverse $LOAD_PATH. This information is also not guaranteed to be in $LOADED_FEATURES.

The attached patch alters rb_require_safe's return value to indicate the loaded file iff a file is actually loaded.
