IDA can't properly deal with RUST strings

RUST strings are not zero-terminated, so there is no delimiter for two strings which are in a consecutive memory region.

RUST compiler/linker puts many constant strings in the ".rodata" segment.

Currently IDA can't properly handle this. It needs to be updated, e.g. adding RUST compiler type(no stable ABI) and RUST string literal type. Or writing some plugins to do this.
