Patch to replace unreachable diagnostic by assert

One of the C front end diagnostics of taking the address of a
bit-field isn't reachable because c_mark_addressable has already given
an error by that point.  This patch replaces it by an assertion.  The
test for these diagnostics is the recently added gcc.dg/bitfld-12.c.

Bootstrapped with no regressions on i686-pc-linux-gnu.  Applied to
