+ * static_assert - check integer constant expression at build time
+ *
+ * static_assert() is a wrapper for the C11 _Static_assert, with a
+ * little macro magic to make the message optional (defaulting to the
+ * stringification of the tested expression).
+ *
+ * Contrary to BUILD_BUG_ON(), static_assert() can be used at global
+ * scope, but requires the expression to be an integer constant
+ * expression (i.e., it is not enough that __builtin_constant_p() is
+ * true for expr).
+ *
+ * Also note that BUILD_BUG_ON() fails the build if the condition is
+ * true, while static_assert() fails the build if the expression is
+ * false.
