Could you add a NEWS entry?

----------------------------------------
Feature #16377: Regexp literals should be frozen
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16377#change-83871

* Author: byroot (Jean Boussier)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: mame (Yusuke Endoh)
* Target version: 2.8
----------------------------------------
The following script:

```ruby
def mutate
  re = /foo/
  state = re.instance_variable_get(:@state)
  re.instance_variable_set(:@state, state.to_i + 1)
  state
end

3.times do
  p mutate
end
```

Output this:

```
nil
1
2
```

IMHO, you shouldn't be able to mutate an unduplicated literal.
