It is slightly different in truth, because assert() is conditionally
defined on NDEBUG, whereas _DIAGASSERT() is conditionally defined on
DIAGNOSTICS.  Also, it calls __diagassert() rather than __assert(),
although both functions take the same arguments, so I suppose it
could be performing additional behavior of some sort.
