Re: [Patch, Fortran, OOP] PR 56261: seg fault call procedure pointer on polymorphic array

Ok, here is an updated patch, which does the discussed checking for
procedure pointer assignments. For this I have introduced a new
function 'gfc_explicit_interface_required', which checks all the items
in F08: and is loosely based on the present checks in
'resolve_global_procedure' (which are replaced by the new function).

I hope the general idea of the patch is ok and the error messages are
sufficiently comprehensible.

One leftover problem: The patch currently fails on the auto_char_len_4
test case, which is not being rejected any more. Actually I'm not
fully convinced that the dg-errors there are correct: If the EXTERNAL
statements in auto_char_len_{1,2} do not trigger an "explicit
interface required" warning, I don't see why the ones in
auto_char_len_4 should. Maybe the errors should not be about requiring
an explicit interface, but rather about a mismatch in the interface
(constant vs variable char len)?
