The `byte_sub` method was stabilized in Rust 1.75.0. By using that
method, we no longer need the unstable `ptr_metadata` feature for
implementing `Arc::from_raw`.

This brings us one step closer towards not using unstable compiler
features.

This patch is based on rust-next because it depends on the patch [1]
that upgrades to Rust 1.75.0.

The comment should be reworded, no more metadata and no unsafe block
so it doesn't have to be SAFETY.

Nit: this could be `.cast::<ArcInner<T>>().cast_mut()` to make the
intentional mutability change clear.

Worth noting that the same change has been in upstream for a while,
since https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/99113.

With the above changed or otherwise clarified:

How about this?

// Pointer casts leave the metadata unchanged. This is okay because
the metadata of `T` and
// `ArcInner<T>` is the same since `ArcInner` is a struct with `T` as
its last field.
//
// This is documented at:
// <https://doc.rust-lang.org/std/ptr/trait.Pointee.html>.

The `.cast()` method can't be used here. It only works for sized types.
