#32404 closed defect (implemented)

Add a CFLG_OBSOLETE flag, and handle it at the confvar layer

Follow up to #32295 for 0.4.3.

nickm says:

My suggestion would be to change how OBSOLETE is implemented: it doesn't really make sense as a type. Instead, there should be an "empty" type for fields that can't be read or written, and a CFLG_OBSOLETE flag that causes these warnings. The CFLG_OBSOLETE flag should be handled at the confvar layer, I think.

This is a bug caused by sponsor 31, so it's a must-have.

Looks good, feel free to merge once the comment has been updated to explain the difference between OBSOLETE and IGNORE.

I wrote some tests for obsolete options in #32295, they should also pass on master, even without #32295 or #32404.

Edit: I'll do extra tests that depend on #32295 and #32404 in a separate branch.
