Re: [PATCH] support: Define support_static_assert for use from C and C++

Wouldn't it be simpler to do this?

#ifdef __cplusplus
# define _Static_assert static_assert
#endif

and then use _Static_assert everywhere? Or do it the other way around. It seems odd to introduce yet another name "support_static_assert" for this concept.
