Subject[PATCH 07/19] rust: add `build_error` crate
Date
From: Gary Guo <gary@garyguo.net>

The `build_error` crate provides the `build_error` function which
is then used to provide the `build_error!` and the `build_assert!`
macros.

`build_assert!` is intended to be used when `static_assert!` cannot
be used, e.g. when the condition refers to generic parameters or
parameters of an inline function.

+//! Build-time error.
+//!
+//! This crate provides a function `build_error`, which will panic in
+//! compile-time if executed in const context, and will cause a build error
+//! if not executed at compile time and the optimizer does not optimise away the
+//! call.
+//!
+//! It is used by `build_assert!` in the kernel crate, allowing checking of
+//! conditions that could be checked statically, but could not be enforced in
+//! Rust yet (e.g. perform some checks in const functions, but those
+//! functions could still be called in the runtime).
+
+#![no_std]
