#30189 needs_review defect

ALL_BUGS_ARE_FATAL build failures in 0.3.4 and later.

Found while reviewing #30179:

We don't include stdlib.h in util_bugs.h, which is sometimes a problem, since the macros declared there can call abort().

This problem is particularly bad for the nonfatal assertions, since they don't call abort() unless ALL_BUGS_ARE_FATAL is defined, which it only rarely is.

There's a merge conflict with master, resolved in bug30189_041 with PR at

I recommend no backport to 0.3.4, since this is a pretty rare configuration for anybody to build in.

(Note that master will still be broken with ALL_BUGS_ARE_FATAL until #30179 is merged on top of this)

Should we add ALL_BUGS_ARE_FATAL to one of our CI jobs?

On the one hand it might be worthwhile, but on the other hand it's not actually a configuration we recommend for anything but stress-testing, fuzzing, and the like.
