DRC changes


I have added code to many DRC errors which shows the minimum clearance, its source, and the actual clearance.

The old DRC code was pretty heavily optimised around the idea of only needing to know if the clearance was violated (and not by how much), so a lot of it has been re-written.  For this reason the new code is currently in a branch (jeffDRC).

I’d appreciate some testing on it if anyone gets a chance.  (More on the DRC errors themselves than the new reporting.)


PS: feel free to report issues here in email, or in https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/issues/2313 <https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/issues/2313>.
