Recursive property accessor

Reports recursive property accessor calls which can end up with a StackOverflowError. Such calls are usually confused with backing field access.

Example:

var counter: Int = 0 set(value) { counter = if (value < 0) 0 else value }

After the quick-fix is applied:

var counter: Int = 0 set(value) { field = if (value < 0) 0 else value }
