commit a1c12fdf3f9b8665719835ce8330b3b2e2574b37
Author: Florian Weimer <>
Date:   Fri Sep 10 13:18:36 2021 +0200

    _Static_assert needs two arguments for compatibility with GCC before 9
    This macro definition enforces two arguments even with newer compilers
    that accept the single-argument form, too.
