Bug 1576097 - Deal with config.status breakage more gracefully. r=nalexander As seen in bug 1575774/1575959, things can go badly when config.status doesn't match expectations, especially when most mach commands try to read it, starting with mach clobber, which is supposed to be the one commant to get away from most problems. The idea here is to throw a recognizable exception so that callers can react accordingly. While not obvious from the patch, the result is that running e.g. mach build with a broken config.status will automatically run configure (because the relevant caller actually handles the rethrown exception that way). There are other calls to from_config_status in the mozbuild reader, but that can't be reached before MozbuildObject.config_environment.
