FILTER_VALIDATE_URLS rejects URLs starting with "phar:///".

Test script:

var_dump(filter_var('file://c:/path/to/dir', FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));
var_dump(filter_var('file:///path/to/dir', FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));
var_dump(filter_var('phar://c:/path/to/dir', FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));
var_dump(filter_var('phar:///path/to/dir', FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));

Expected result:
string(21) "file://c:/path/to/dir"
string(19) "file:///path/to/dir"
string(21) "phar://c:/path/to/dir"
string(19) "phar:///path/to/dir"

Actual result:
string(21) "file://c:/path/to/dir"
string(19) "file:///path/to/dir"
string(21) "phar://c:/path/to/dir"
