Summary0001577: Config parser chokes on c-style comments at the end of lines containing values
DescriptionAdding a c-style comment to the end of a config line containing a value will cause anope to choke on the line, and fail to start, with the message "unexpected word", the provided line in the error being the next line containing a config value.

Examples provided in reproduction steps.
Steps To ReproduceAdd a c-style comment to the end of any config line that has a value:

add_to_akill = no /* this will break anope */
refresh = 600 /* this too will break anope */
anope_is = "very unhappy with this" /* anope won't start with this */

add_to_akill = no # this will not break anope

section /* this won't break anope */
    this = "value"
    stuff = yes
    five = 5

foo = "i am the line that's breaking things" /* this comment right here is trouble */
bar = "but i'm the line anope will report an error on" # should've used this style of comment!
