I cannot answer your question (I'm not the right person for that), but I
thought you could want to be aware that there exists a re-implementation
of pam_listfile, which we're maintaining and using in Openwall GNU/*/Linux:

I don't know the current status of pam_listfile in the official
Linux-PAM, but in 2001 a reasonable action was to replace it in its
entirety, which we did.

I don't know if the re-implementation shares the same inefficiency that
you're addressing with a patch to the original implementation now.
