/// @assertion Allow generic function types as type arguments and bounds
/// The language disallows generic function types as type arguments and bounds.
/// late List<T Function<T>(T)> idFunctions; // INVALID.
/// var callback = [foo<T>(T value) => value]; // Inferred as above, then invalid.
/// late S Function<S extends T Function<T>(T)>(S) f; // INVALID.
/// We remove that restriction, so a type argument and a bound can be a generic
/// function type.
/// This requires no new syntax, and in some cases only the removal of a single
/// check. There might be some platforms where the implementation currently
/// assumes that generic function types cannot occur as the value of type
/// variables (an proof-of-concept attempt hit an assert in the VM). Such
/// assumptions will need to be flushed out with tests and fixed.
/// Because we already infer List<T Function<T>(T)> in the code above, this
/// change will not affect type inference, it will just make the inferred type
/// not be an error afterwards.
/// We do not expect the removal of this restriction to affect the feasibility of
/// type inference. After all, it's already possible to have a generic function
/// type occurring covariantly in a type argument, like List<T Function<T>(T)
/// Function()>.
/// @description Checks that generic invariant function can be a type argument
/// and bound of FutureOr.
