[Dev-luatex] \jobname with spaces

Consider the following source file


Run it with pdftex, you get:

> \x=macro:
->"foo bar".

With luatex (0.40):

> \x=macro:
->foo bar.

This is a problem eg when using LaTeX when it tries to \input\jobname.aux.

Regardless of any particular format, there is a consistency problem with pdftex,
which should be fixed, imo by making luatex behave the same as pdftex, namely
quote the file name in \jobname.
