bind: ignore unsupported basic types

Before this change, binding unsupported basic types such as
uint failed with an error. Instead, add them to the list of
ignored types so that no error is generated and a comment is
generated explaining why the offending function, constant or
variable was skipped.

Unsigned integers are probably easy to support in ObjC, but
leave them unsupported for now.

While here, improve the printing of the ignored types in the
explaining comments.

Fixes golang/go#24762

Go support for Mobile devices

The Go mobile repository holds packages and build tools for using Go on mobile platforms.

Package documentation as a starting point:

Caution image

The Go Mobile project is experimental. Use this at your own risk. While we are working hard to improve it, neither Google nor the Go team can provide end-user support.

This is early work and installing the build system requires Go 1.5. Follow the instructions on to install the gomobile command, build the basic and the bind example apps.

Contributions to Go are appreciated. See
