The eventual thing I came up with is a lot cleaner than the fix for #25127, with the same amount of code now (but drastically less code for each future time we run into this issue). It's in my bug25185 branch and Travis is passing.

I think this looks good, though I might be missing subtle things because I'm still rather new to Rust.

Minor documentation clarity nits:

  • The "Note" in the documentation for cstr! refers to "the above code compiles", but it actually means the first out of three examples rather than the example immediately preceding it. Maybe replace it with "the first example above compiles"?
  • In that same "Note", "symbols table" should probably be "symbol table" (unless it's idiomatic in Rust documentation to use plural "symbols" there)

These are fairly minor so feel free to merge as is or without further review after fixing the nits.
