Add an analysis_options.yaml file for test_runner.

I didn't realize they were being gitignored across the entire SDK repo.
I'm not sure why they are ignored at all, but based on the linked bug,
I think it's only a top-level analysis_options.yaml file that would
cause problems?

This change to the .gitignore file prohibits that case while still
allowing analysis_options.yaml files in subdirectories.

I very strongly want to have an options file for test_runner to ensure
that everyone on the team keeps it "no-implicit-cast" clean.

A client-optimized language for fast apps on any platform

Dart is:

  • Optimized for UI: Develop with a programming language specialized around the needs of user interface creation

  • Productive: Make changes iteratively: use hot reload to see the result instantly in your running app

  • Fast on all platforms: Compile to ARM & x64 machine code for mobile, desktop, and backend. Or compile to JavaScript for the web

Dart has flexible compiler technology lets you run Dart code in different ways, depending on your target platform and goals:

  • Dart Native: For programs targeting devices (mobile, desktop, server, and more), Dart Native includes both a Dart VM with JIT (just-in-time) compilation and an AOT (ahead-of-time) compiler for producing machine code.

  • Dart Web: For programs targeting the web, Dart Web includes both a development time compiler (dartdevc) and a production time compiler (dart2js).
