Upgrade cstr crate to 0.2.x

cstr 0.2 switches away from the procedural macro hack, and uses the proper function-like procedural macro. It requires Rust 1.45 and above. With 0.2.2 and Rust 1.46, cstr macro would also be usable to initialize const as well.

Not likely to see this until FX83?

Any better using 0.2.5?

Somehow can't make it work on try... This is my latest attempt:

The two Android WR fails have:

[task 2020-12-05T23:15:41.926Z] error[E0432]: unresolved import `proc_macro`

[task 2020-12-05T23:15:41.967Z] error: aborting due to previous error

which looks like an error from old days when extern crate proc_macro was still required, like before 1.42.0 was released. On that version cstr 0.2.x definitely can't be compiled.

But I checked the rustc toolchain downloaded in that log, and it seems to be using the exactly same 1.48.0 I'm using locally, and I can't reproduce its result...

It would be appreciated if anyone can shed some light on this.

OK, I know the reason. I think this is because of cargo-apk used in the build somehow invokes rustc directly without passing --extern proc_macro like what cargo normally does. I think that means adding extern crate proc_macro; would fix it.

And it seems to me the latest version of cargo-apk doesn't have this problem, so maybe we should upgrade it.
