The issue #28128 (changeset 259745f9a1e4) introduced a DeprecationWarning on invalid Unicode sequence like "\c". When Python is run with -Werror, Python crashs with an assertion error:

$ ./python -Werror -c '"\c"'
python: Objects/abstract.c:2232: PyObject_Call: Assertion `!PyErr_Occurred()' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

By the way, an unit test is missing since the bug was not catched by the test suite!

Attached ast.patch fixes the issue: replace the DeprecationWarning with a SyntaxError.

Is it the expected behaviour? Is it worth it to chain the two exceptions?

> By the way, an unit test is missing since the bug was not catched by the test suite!

Lib/test/ contains an unit test but it changes the warnings filter, so -Werror option is ignored.

This is my fault. Proposed patch adds tests for the "error" action.
