Align spelling of keywords with C++ and make them feature tests proposal for C2x

Abstract

Over time C has integrated certain features in coordination with C++, but the strategy to integrate the corresponding keywords has not be entirely consistent: some were integrated with the same syntax as C++ (const, inline) others were integrated in an underscore-capitalized form. Compatibility with C++ is then ensured via a set of library header files that provide the C++ spelling. The reason for this complicated mechanism had been backwards compatibility for existing code bases. Since now years or even decades have gone by, we think that it is time to switch and to use the same primary spelling as for C++.
