[patch, libgfortran] PR43899 Wrong unused-variable warning with NAMELISTs

This PR is about two issues. The first is a bogus warning about the variable being unused when -Wall is being used. The second issue has to do with warning a user when a namelist read of a character object is truncated. Only the second issue is addressed here.

As Tobias points out, the test case is legal. The attached patch adds a new runtime warning function to libgfortran and uses it in list_read.c if the test case has been compiled with -fbounds-check. The warning is issued to stderr, and execution proceeds normally.

This will give users an opportunity to debug code that may unintentionally have an issue.

The runtime warning will also be useful down the road.

Regression tested on x86-64-linux-gnu. OK for trunk.

	PR libgfortran/43899
	* runtime/error.c (generate_error): New function to generate a run
	time warning message. Fix some whitespace.
	* Add symbol for new function.
	* libgfortran.h: Add prototype for new function.
	* io/list_read.c (nml_read_obj): Use new function to warn when a
	character namelist object is truncated.  Only warn if compiled
	with -fbounds-check.
