Re: [Darwin] Patch c++/15428

The whole business about not setting the explicit bit is a kludge to allow
explicit instantiations of a class when not all of the members have been
defined. It would probably be better to handle that directly in
do_type_instantiation, and just always set the explicit bit.

I agree that that would be cleaner. It would also be consistent with the direction that I think the standards committee is moving in.

I'll make sure that doesn't break the build (i.e. that nothing in libstdc++
or libjava depends on the old behavior), and, if it looks OK, I'll submit a
patch to make that change.
