Using 'Forward Add' shadow rendering mode produces irrelevant syntax error




Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 3Secondary functionality broken

How to reproduce:
1. Open Unity
2. Create a new project
3. Import tester-submitted shader (Test.shader)
4. Inspect shader syntax error pointing at line 102 (unexpected ';')
5. Switch to alternative shadow rendering mode at line 74
6. Notice shader syntax error disappear at line 102

Expected result: Unity compiles both shadow rendering modes correctly.
Actual result: Unity does not compile 'Forward Add' shadow rendering mode and complains about syntax errors
