[PATCH] globalvar: add a globalvar_get helper

We have functions to set global variables, but none to get them, but
having a globalvar_get helper could be useful to get code size down when
global variables are disabled, as globalvar_get("var") would be optimized
out, while getenv("global.var") wouldn't. Therefore, add the helper.
