eolian: add support for static and terminated arrays
Adds two new type types, STATIC_ARRAY and TERMINATED_ARRAY. Static arrays are only allowed as struct members right now - they translate to regular C static arrays (allowing them elsewhere wouldn't be good, as C isn't very good at working with the size information). Terminated arrays are basically sequences of data terminated at the end. The base type of static arrays can be any type that is not marked ref (explicit ref may get allowed later). The base type of terminated arrays has the same restriction plus that it has to be either implicitly reference type (i.e. translating to pointer in C), integer type or a character. In case of ref types, the terminator is NULL. In case of integer types, the terminator is a zero. In case of character types, the terminator is also a zero (null terminator like C strings). @feature
