Improve PHP7 error reporting for include-time syntax errors

Authored by epriestley on Nov 28 2017, 2:05 PM.



Ref T12101. Ref T12855. Ref T12190.

In PHP7, include_once may raise a Throwable which has a useless message and stack trace (neither point at the actual file or line where the error occurs).

Catch and mangle these so they're useful. This upgrades the message from syntax error: unexpected X so it has a file and line number.
