[C++ PATCH] Fix implicit assignment operators with anonymous aggregates


The testcase below results in error (and it did not in g++ 2.95.x), while I
think it is completely valid. It B does not have a trivial assignment
operator, everything compiles fine (A's assignment operator ends up
immediate call to build (MODIFY_EXPR, ...)). The problem is that
fixup_anonymous_aggr removes the assignment operator method, but
build_modify_expr requires it, so it dies on anonymous union's operator= not
being accessible.
This patch fixes it (bootstrapped on i386, no regressions), another approach
might be not to delete the artificial operator= of anonymous aggregates.
For anonymous unions both should IMHO work right, I'm not sure about
anonymous structures:
I don't think we disallow anonymous structure's members to have explicit
operator=, which won't be called now (well, g++ will either error or simply
pretend there are none) nor with the patch below (g++ will pretend there are
none) - to fix that either fixup_anonymous_aggr would have to keep implicit
operator= or do_build_assign_ref would have to build_modify_expr for each of
anonymous structure's fields.

	* method.c (do_build_assign_ref): Don't use build_modify_expr for
	anonymous aggregates, since they don't have assignment operator

	* g++.old-deja/g++.other/anon8.C: New test.
