That will never happen, because the two are not interchangeable
[ignoring the churn it would involve]. BUILD_BUG_ON can eat expressions
which static_assert won't (e.g. BUILD_BUG_ON(cnt - label1 != OFFSET1);,
where cnt and label1 are definitely not ICEs). Which is one of the
reasons the kernel cannot be built without optimizations.
