The following change broke test_fstring when using the old parser. I reopen the issue.

    bpo-40246: Revert reporting of invalid string prefixes (GH-19888)
    Due to backwards compatibility concerns regarding keywords immediately followed by a string without whitespace between them (like in `bg="#d00" if clear else"#fca"`) will fail to parse,
    commit 41d5b94af44e34ac05d4cd57460ed104ccf96628 has to be reverted.

$ ./python -X oldparser -m test -v test_fstring 
FAIL: test_invalid_string_prefixes (test.test_fstring.TestCase) (str='BF""')
  File "<string>", line 1
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/vstinner/python/master/Lib/test/", line 29, in assertAllRaise
AssertionError: "unexpected EOF while parsing" does not match "invalid syntax (<string>, line 1)"
