op_free(): don't assert op_private ok when erred

[perl #126258]

op_free includes an assert to make sure each op's op_private field
only has the flags set that are expected for that op. It's a thing I added
at the same time I added the regen/op_private mechanism, and is more a
general "make sure people are only setting the flags we know about" test.

However, if the op tree is being freed after a compilation error, some
op's flags may be in an inconsistent state; so skip the assert in that case.

Turn new diag message into a link.

This turned out to be a bit of work. When running the porting tests,
the pod checker checks whether all links are valid. To do so, it
creates a database of all valid targets, and then for all links,
checks whether the target exist. However, the targets have been POD
processed, while the links have not -- except for E<sol> and
E<verbar>. So, if the target contains S<>, the link *must not*.

maint policy: allow fixes for new features

As (Steve Hay)++ said on-list:

    I think it's a shame if users get a 5.X.0 release with some shiny new
    features which I hope they're excited about and start making use of,
    but then find bugs in those features and have to wait until 5.X+2.0,
    rather than 5.X.1, for fixes.

rjbs++ clarified that, although such changes constitute a break in backwards
compatibility, there are two reasons why bugs in new features should be
fixed in maint:

    * they delay people from using a feature for a year, because it does
      something stupid

    * they risk enshrining bad behavior under the usual program of bugward

sv_inc/dec_nomg(): croak on GVs etc

RT #126637

Prior to v5.23.4-100-g20e9643, pp_postinc() etc checked whether the SV was
an AV, non-fake GV, or any other such non-modifiable thinngy; and if so,
called Perl_croak_no_modify(). That commit of mine removed the check, and
instead relied on the underlying sv_inc_nomg() function (called by
pp_postinc()) to do the checking instead. It turns out that while
sv_inc_nomg() etc does some checks, it wasn't as thorough as pp_postinc().
So something like

    my $y = $_++ for *FOO;

now crashes with an assertion failure in sv_inc_nomg() rather than

This commit adds such checks to sv_inc_nomg() and sv_dec_nomg() - which
need them anyway, since they may be called from places other than
pp_postinc() etc.
